Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
If you're a fan of John Green, Michael Grant or Stephen King, get your jaws round 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. Look out for the highly anticipated sequel Exile from Eden.
