    I resisted reading this book, because I retain a childhood prejudice against books with male narrators, and I still don t really like kids books about animals It s not really THAT much about animals But I forced myself to read a chapter, and then another chapter, and then realized I was actually enjoying it It s kind of a strange book for a Newbery winner it skews quite a bit...

    Like finding twenty bucks in a pair of pants, I was elated when I came across a free copy of It s Like This Cat, by Emily Neville It is one of those elemental books from my childhood, which had kind of recessed in my memory.I read this novel when I was in 5th or 6th grade and I was very much aware that its themes were mature and real world than the sports books that made up most of my reading This book really helped turn me into a discerning reader, and even at that early age, I could start to evaluate a work and appreciate it for its stylistic choices The New York City setting was fascinatingly vivid to me and the protagonist s first glimmerings of attraction to girls paralleled my own shifting thoughts.However, that isn t the only significance that It s Like This Cat has for me I have always felt that there are certain books that evoke a very specific time and place and I distinctly remember another time that I read it, sometime in the middle school years I was having a radical mastoidectomy at Johns Hopkins, and was in the hospital for at least a week One afternoon, a few days after the surgery, we were allowed to go to this little bookroom that they had in the pediatric ward My roommate was a young black child, maybe seven, who was extremely shy and had few visitors I remember he took my hand as we shuffled down the hallway and I found a copy of this wonderful book I re read it...

    First recent read I can see why this book confused me as a childa New York apartment setting do people live in apartments why don t they have a house an eighteenyear old boy who is homeless where are the boy s parents young teenagers who wander around a big city isn t that dangerous a girl whose mother is a beatnik what in the world is that This world was totally outside of my experiences as a ten year old girl in small town Texas.Second recent read Dave and his dad fight all the time and Dave s mother gets sick Dave brings home a cat who he appropriately names Cat Cat helps Dave meet Tom and Mary and binds Dave and his parents into a real family I can remember reading this book when I was a young girl I remember being confused about people who live in apartments people do that and hearing a dad and his son argue a...
