It's Like This, Cat 1964 Medal Winner ***

Dave Mitchell lives in Manhattan and gets a cat. This creates a series of events that bring different people into his life changing theirs and his own.

The author writes so seemingly effortlessly, I felt like I could see Dave's apartment and the streets of New York without long descriptions of them. In this book she introduces the reader to many different places like Gramercy Park, Bronx Zoo, Coney Island and many others. It's a contemporary novel, so I also get a glimpse of what life was like in the 1960's for a teenage boy.
