Kit is a bored sixteen-year-old with nothing to do one summer when he starts feeding stray cats. He loves it when cool, artistic Jess helps him out, even though he has to endure constant taunting by her disaffected metalhead friends. They make fun of him for being like the local cat lady, but Kit doesn't care—especially after Jess draws him an anime-style avatar named Katman.
Exploring themes of abandonment and the transformative power of art, this is an emotionally astute coming-of-age tale from the hugely talented Kevin C. Pyle.
