"The Titan Kiss"
Dyspepsia is an ordinary little girl with an extraordinary name. Her mam thought it smart and cool - without quite knowing what it meant. Her friend Spookie is an undead quantum cat. Once she belonged to Prof Schrodinger - until the RSPCA took her away. She desperately wants to be ordinary too, and they go for a walk in the park. There the friends find a tiny bone sticking out of the ground.
Dyspepsia is a normal little girl, with a gorgeous curl in the middle of her forehead. (Parents: don't give your darling daughter a name, no matter how pretty it sounds, unless you know what it means!) Spookie was just a normal cat called Pookie, until her "accident". Actually it wasn't an accident, as Prof. Schrodinger could tell you. But it wasn't her fault, so she can't be blamed.
