If you're a fan of John Green, Michael Grant, Stephen King or Sally Green's Half Bad, get your pincers stuck into this. In the small town of Ealing, Iowa, Austin and his best friend Robby have accidentally unleashed an unstoppable army. An army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises that only want to do two things. This is the truth. This is history. It's the end of the world. And nobody knows anything about it. Funny, intense, complex and brave, Grasshopper Jungle is a groundbreaking, genre-bending, coming-of-age stunner. 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).

“Utterly brilliant”

If you read one young adult book this year, Grasshopper Jungle should probably be it. It’s immense and tiny, intense and careful, pacey and thoughtful, funny and scary.
