Travis Coates has a good head…on someone else’s shoulders. A touching, hilarious, and wholly original coming-of-age story from John Corey Whaley, author of the Printz and Morris Award-winning Where Things Come Back.
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 in Denver, Colorado. Five years later, it was reattached to some other guy’s body, and well, here he is. Despite all logic, he’s still 16, but everything and everyone around him has changed. That includes his bedroom, his parents, his best friend, and his girlfriend. Or maybe she’s not his girlfriend anymore? That’s a bit fuzzy too.
Looks like if the new Travis and the old Travis are ever going to find a way to exist together, there are going to be a few more scars.
Oh well, you only live twice.

I would recommend this book to everyone this is the best book I've ever read and I don't like most books
Great book. Some adult themes - beware if you plan to listen or read to your child, as you will need to explain some sexual items. Funny and very well written.
loved it and inspirational. Recommend and with audible you can imagine it better. Great Book.
