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

Rifkin, L. The nine lives of Romeo Crumb: Life four. Stratford Road, 2008 [978-0-9743221-9-3]
Now that that the Sticks (Domestics) have won their battle against the Alleys with the help of the mutants everything should be fine but they are not. Romeo runs into some mutant rats which blackmail him into getting some food for them. It messes with his head and he gets stranger.. no one likes him any more. Meanwhile a new cat, Vincent, arrives and some Alleys are teasing him. He goes through his nine lives in this one book. I liked the first book in this series but when the mutant animals started appearing, the series just started getting too weird for me. This 201 page book is once again weird. None of my students have been asking for the continuation of this series I doubt if I will be purchasing any more of this series when they come out (and they are being written slowly.) There are much better places to spend your money.
