Review: Noggin

Noggin by John Corey Whaley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was so bizarre in the best sort of way. The 16 year-old main character was the 2nd person to survive a full body transplant, after being “dead” (having his head cryogenically frozen) for 5 years.

When he wakes up, he feels as if he has been asleep for a few days, but everyone in his life is 5 years older. They have moved on with their lives without him and grown up and apart in all different kinds of ways, having never expected to see him again, but he feels and thinks the same.

The story tackled all kinds of big questions and issues in a way that was unique, unexpected, and serious yet somehow never too heavy.
