Another growing up book! This one is about Dave Mitchell, a 14-year-old boy who lives in New York City. Dave adopts a cat from his neighbor and names it "Cat". Dave and his dad don't get along very well, and the fact that "Pop" absolutely hates Cat doesn't help at all. The story was fun to read, what I liked best was getting to "explore" New York City with Dave, great fun for a girl like me who lives "in the middle of nowhere". My mom says New York has changed lots, maybe I will get a chance to explore it myself someday!
