Travis Coates has a good head. On someone else's shoulders. Listen: Travis Coates was alive once and then he wasn't. Now he's alive again. Simple as that. The in-between part is still a little fuzzy, but Travis can tell you that, at some point or another, his head got chopped off and shoved into a freezer. Five years later, it was reattached to some other guy's body, and well, here he is. Despite all logic, he's still sixteen, but everything and everyone around him has changed

His cousin overdoses; his town becomes absurdly obsessed with the alleged reappearance of an extinct woodpecker; and most troubling of all, his sensitive, gifted fifteen-year-old brother, Gabriel, suddenly and inexplicably disappears. A surprising and harrowing climax emerges that is tinged with melancholy and regret, comedy and absurdity, and above all, hope
