When I got married in 2007 we moved 120 miles away In 2011 we moved back I thought my return would be the best of both worlds I’d have my new family life and old friends back redefined for adulthood I walked into my old bar the neighborhood hangout from my single years and the same people were there many of them sitting on the same stools all of them doing and talking the same shit And for me it was obvious immediately it wasn’t the same Three years later I still haven’t gone back to that barNow imagine being Travis Coates the protagonistnarrator of Noggin At the age of 16 with a terminal case of leukemia Travis volunteered for a secret sci fi sounding surgery His head was cut off and cryogenically frozen Now five years later feeling like he woke up from a nap Travis regains consciousness in a hospital bed surrounded by doctors nurses and his parents Travis’s head has been transplanted onto a perfectly healthy donor body He is a miracle of modern science and his marching orders are to go live and enjoy life againSo there’s this Flight of the Navigator type situation going on For Travis no time has passed For his best friend Kyle and girlfriend Cate who are now in their early 20s it’s been a half decade of mourning Travis and trying to go live and enjoy life again Now unexpectedly he’s backThe wedge aside from the natural effects of time spent apart between Travis and Kyle stems from the fact that Kyle told him on his deathbed that he ie Kyle was gay Now Kyle’s like Never mind that shit meet my girlfriend Whoops Guys though especially Guys in Fiction can always work out their conflictsCate proves a tougher nut to crack She’s engaged now to a 25 year old full fledged adult Travis’s single minded mentality is Cate belongs with me I’ll do what it takes to get her back And throughout the book that attitude never wavers even though picking up with Cate is clearly impossible making the situation sad overstated painful to observe and doomed to futilityCate and Travis is the relationship the book hinges on there are flashbacks aplenty and they’re no Eleanor and Park but they made a pretty awesome couple back in the day Noggin is five parts Cate and Travis three parts Travis and Kyle two parts Travis and Hatton Travis’s new best friend in high school likable but essentially a Kyle clone and one part Travis and his parents There are just a couple minor supporting characters the only significant one being Lawrence married dude father and the only other person on Earth who’s been successfully brought back to life with his head on a donor body Lawrence pops up on the phone every now and again to assure Travis that Yeah this shit is weird and Nah nobody else could ever understand what it’s like to be usAuthor John Corey Whaley who won the Printz Award with his 2011 debut Where Things Come Back went much high concept and ambitious with the premise and scope of Noggin his sopho effort But he scaled back the story and the characters this time The plot itself is threadbare though there was one revelatory twist at the two thirds mark that I really didn’t see coming The emotional exploration though is huge These are characters you’ll empathize with individually even when they’re at odds with each other Noggin is by no means epic and it does meander like Where Things Come Back it could be twice الأمثال العامية في تطوان و البلاد العربية -

Nd his girlfriend Or maybe she’s not his girlfriend any That’s a bit fuzzy tooLooks like if the new Travis and the old Travis are ever going to find a way to exist together then there are going to be a few scarsOh well you only live twi. edited somewhat 11 1 15 with uotes and extra thoughts “Maybe we all just exist all versions of us exist at times and we have to figure out a way to get to each of them to find each one and tell that version that it's okay that it's all just the way it works a concept too powerful to ignore but too complicated to explain” “No matter how often you see or talk to someone no matter how much you know them or don't know them you always fill up some space in their lives that can't ever be replaced the right way again once you leave it” A tale you have to suspend belief for on one aspect but an interesting one with that at first is slightly creepy but it didn't take me long to sink into the storyI couldn't imagine making the decision Travis did not knowing for sure if you would come back and adjusting to everything being different when you aren't “We all get lots of people And maybe we don’t always get to have them the exact way we want them but if we can figure out a way to compromise you know then we can keep them all” “Okay so first we get you a new computer and then a Facebook page Priorities you know he said typing in Kyle's passwordWhat would I do without you Found her he interrupted She's at Carrie's OK Bar It's downtownWhat the hell is Carrie's OK BarIt's a karaoke bar Travis come onWait how do you know she's thereShe checked in there about twenty minutes agoWhat does that meanOh Right Since you left it's become very important that we all constantly know each other's thoughts locations and birthdaysThat's really stupid Except for in this one very specific situation I can't go if her fiancé's there though That would be too weirdHe's notHow do you knowBecause she put 'Girls' Night' with about five exclamation points after itAre people just asking to be murderedPretty much So are we going” One of my favorite bits was view spoilerwhen everyone including the Doctors and Nurses celebrated every holiday at the same time for Travis It was so sweet Bittersweet and moving with a few funny moments one moment near the end with the Easter part with Kate and Kyle reading memories from the eggs had me tearing up and smiling “It's a real shame I like how people act on holidays Everyone just seems I don't know lighter maybe Like they're allowed to have fun all day long and eat anything they want and do silly things and no one cares because hey it's a holiday so why not” hide spoiler Inventing Elliot uotes and extra thoughts “Maybe we all just exist all versions of Surrender to Ecstasy us exist at times and we have to
