Staff Review: Noggin

The charming premise of Noggin is that the head of Travis Coates, a 16-year-old cancer victim, has been frozen for five years, and then successfully transplanted onto the (buff) body of another 16-year-old. Travis “awakens” to find himself still 16 in a world where everyone else is five years older and moving on in life. His attempts to get his life “back to normal” are often misguided, and sometimes this leads to moving contemplations of what life is worth. Although Travis and his friends Kyle, Hatton, and Kate are clearly interested in sex, that aspect of their lives is so deftly handled that the book is clean fun, start to finish.
