Rifkin, L. The nine lives of Romeo Crumb: Life 2

Rifkin, L. The nine lives of Romeo Crumb: life two. Stratford Road, 2005 [0-9743221-1-3]
We continue the story of Romeo and the other Sticks (Domestic cats) and their struggle with the Alleys (alley cats.) This time the Alleys trick Romeo and his gang to get on a boat to the Statute of Liberty just before a boat-worker strike so they are stuck there. On the island they meet a strange cat who has had experiments done on him. Several of the group get hurt and/or sick and even lose a life. Life gets harder and harder for them on the island. Finally they figure out how to build a raft to get back. When they get back they see that their hideout has been taken over by the Alleys and the Sticks are all taken prisoner. Another battle ensues. And of course, Romeo loses another life. This 277 page book has gotten darker and more evil than the first one. I don’t care for the weird cat they find on the island. Although I enjoy the books, I am getting concerned about how dark they may get by Romeo’s last life.
