Louis Drax is a boy like no other. Every year something violent, terrifyingly violent, happens to him. His psychologist is baffled and his mother lives in constant panic. Louis is like a cat--but cats only have nine lives and Louis has used up eight. One for every year. On his ninth birthday, Louis goes on a picnic with his parents and falls off a cliff. The details are shrouded in mystery. Louis's mother is shell-shocked, his father has vanished. Was the fall mere accident? If anybody knows, they aren't telling. Until one day, deep with in his coma, Louis meets the frightening, bandaged figure who calls himself Gustave. And begins to tell his tale. The Ninth Life of Louis Drax is the story of a family falling apart, told in the vivid, funny, sad voice of its comatose son. Full of twists and turns, secrets and heartaches, this is Jensen at her best.
