This book is about a gang (clowder) of cats involved in organized crim in Baltimore City who eventually move to NY (to regroup after some get whacked) while undergoing a series of bizarre but entertaining events. Notable for some great social analogies and word play, most of which I probably missed as I'm not that socially astute. A classic example is a cat who wins a ribbon in a cat show and gives a speech duplicating, in cat terms, Halle Berries famous oscar award winning acceptance speech "This minute is for every unnamed homeless cat of color who now has a chance because this ribbon has been awarded. This minute is for every Turkish Angora, Havana Brown and Devon Rex who went before me. For cats of color everywhere---" When the cats fall asleep they dream about prior lives, one of their "nine lives" and these were my favorite parts. Great way to get teenagers to remember prominent events in an entertaining way. Can't anticipate anything in this book. I did get attached to the characters and cried at the end , first out of sadness, then happiness. I laughed outright several times which is rare for me
An interesting story centered around a group of criminal cats. They run catnip along the east coast and also have issues with dogs and sundry other groups of cats. The author uses dreaming as a device to describe the cats' former "nine lives" which gives sections a more historical bent. A good gift for a family or friend cat lover. Not too long yet a fun and fulfilling read.
I enjoy a unique read and this was it. I like how the author blended criminal fiction fantasy with historical fiction, the latter of which was well researched.
