When sixteen-year-old Travis Coates is diagnosed with terminal cancer he knows that his life is over. After months of unsuccessful treatment the last thing he ever expects is to have a future. So when Dr. Saranson from the Saranson Center for Life Preservation approaches him about taking part in a radical new procedure to possibly save him Travis doesn’t see the harm in trying, no matter how strange it all sounds. What Dr. Saranson plans to do is to cut off and cryogenically freeze Travis’s head, the only part of him that is cancer free, and reattach it to someone else’s healthy body. Of course Travis never thinks for one second that the procedure will actually work, after all what they’re attempting to do to him is just plain crazy. So imagine his surprise when he wakes up to find his head actually has been attached to a new body, and five years have passed since he went in for the procedure. What follows is Travis’s surprising, emotional, and at times hilarious attempt to navigate life under the most extraordinary of circumstances.
