Review

Praise for Grasshopper Jungle 'A cool/passionate, gay/straight, male/female, absurd/real, funny/moving, past/present, breezy/profound masterpiece of a book.' Michael Grant, bestselling author of the GONE series. 'If you only read one book this year about sexually confused teens battling 6 foot tall head-chomping praying mantises in small town America, make it this one.' Charlie Higson, author of the bestselling Young Bond series. 'I devoured @marburyjack's wonderful 'cool/passionate' Grasshopper Jungle'. Sally Green, author of Half Bad. 'Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith. You must read immediately. It's an absolute joy. Scary, funny, sexy. Trust me.' Jake Shears, lead singer of The Scissor Sisters 'Not for the faint-hearted. Mutant grasshoppers, rampant lust - a tale of teen self discovery that grips like a mating mantis.' Metro

Product Description

Grasshopper Jungle is smart, cool and laconic contemporary young adult fiction. I read somewhere that human beings are genetically predisposed to record history. We believe it will prevent us from doing stupid things in the future. This is my history. There are things in here: Babies with two heads, insects as big as electric guitars, God, the devil, limbless warriors, rocket ships, sex, diving bells, theft, wars, monsters, internal combustion engines, love, cigarettes, joy, bomb shelters, pizza, and cruelty. Just like it’s always been.
