Editorial Reviews


"Tim Cummings is a magician. He's spun the most delicious spell with Alice the Cat—this book thrums with anger and grief, yet is ultimately one of the most charming, hilarious, heart-filled, life-giving novels I've ever read. Tess is a narrator for the ages—I adore her playful use of language and her fierce, loving spirit. I love everything about this book—all its sentences, all its characters—with every last inch of my heart."
- Gayle Brandeis, author of My Life with the Lincolns and The Art of Misdiagnosis

From the Back Cover

On the verge of her thirteenth birthday, Tess's life is falling apart. Her mother is dead. Her father is like a zombie. And now her beloved cat, Alice, has started rushing into the street when cars go by, trying to get run over. The only thing Tess can think of that might help? Running away. As she ventures from home, Tess stumbles upon a crew of manga-loving goth kids hiding out in the local haunted house performing séances. There, she discovers that the house's ghostly entity desperately wants a cat to care for in the afterlife, and it has its sights set on Alice. With the help of an unexpected friend and the brilliant, adorkable kid who has a huge crush on her, Tess will do whatever it takes to save Alice the cat, help the ghost, heal her dad, and survive the summer in one piece. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
