About this item

"Austin Szerba narrates the end of humanity as he and his best friend Robby accidentally unleash an army of giant, unstoppable bugs and uncover the secrets of a decades-old experiment gone terribly wrong"--

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.
You know what I mean.
Funny, intense, complex, and brave, "Grasshopper Jungle" brilliantly weaves together everything from testicle-dissolving genetically modified corn to the struggles of recession-era, small-town America in this groundbreaking coming-of-age stunner.
"Original, weird, sexy, thought-provoking and guaranteed to stir controversy. One hell of a book." - Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of the "Gone" series
"Andrew Smith is the bravest storyteller I know. "Grasshopper Jungle" is the most intelligent and gripping book I've read in over a decade. I didn't move for two days until I had it finished. Trust me. Pick it up right now. It's a masterpiece." - A. S. King, Printz Honor-winning author of "Ask the Passengers "and "Please Ignore Vera Dietz"
""Grasshopper Jungle "is about the end of the world. And everything in between." - Alex London, author of "Proxy"
"In "Grasshopper Jungle," it's as if Andrew Smith is somehow possessed by the ghost of Kurt Vonnegut. This book is nothing short of a brilliant, hilarious thrill-ride that is instantly infectious. But, the most beautiful thing about "Grasshopper Jungle" has nothing to do with the absurd or out-of-this-world. It is the deft hand by which Smith explores teenage love and sexuality that is truly breathtaking. In writing a history of the end of the world, Smith may have just made history himself." - John Corey Whaley, Printz Award-winning author of "Where Things Come Back"
