Noggin by John Corey Whaley Travis died five years ago. Now he’s alive again. But not the same and nothing else is the same either. Travis’ head is now attached to a different body, a healthy body, one not dying of cancer. You see, when Travis was dying of cancer, he and his parents took a huge risk and had his head severed from his body and frozen. Now Travis is one of two survivors of the cryogenic procedure and he has returned to the same home, the same parents, the same friends, but not the same life. His girlfriend is now engaged to someone else. His best friend who had admitted he was gay just before Travis died is now dating a girl and about to move in with her. His mother can’t look at him without crying. And Travis’ room which used to be his haven now is sterile and hotel-like. But Travis is the same except for his body. It was as if he closed his eyes and reopened them. So what is a guy to do? Well, he still has to finish high school, get his driver’s license and of course try to regain the girl. But nothing is simple when you are on a completely different timeframe than everyone else!
