"Louis remembered the day of the hawk. He could picture the way the meadow looked, and how his father's cat, Calico, trotted through the long grass just before the hawk swept down out of the sky.
Calico had outsmarted the hawk, and Ed, Louis's father, was triumphant. The champion of the world, he called her. But now everything was differnt at the mountain cabin, scene of Calico's bravura performance. Alone with his grandfather, Louis had to come to terms with the differences - Ed gone forever, Calico behaving strangely, his grandfather's frightening and mysterious illness.
Chester Aaron has written a sensitive, powerful novel about the process of maturing and the changes it brings."
