Product description

Plugged by Jake Shears, Michael Grant and Metro. Confused kids vs massive mutant mantises. B movie theme. A list appeal. The boring little small town of Ealing, Iowa is the kind of place where kids like Austin wish something would happen. Anything, really. Except maybe this. Being invaded by an army of horny, starving, blimming HUGE praying mantises that only want to do two things. Eat you. And the other thing praying mantises do before they eat you. Oh dear… Bomb shelters. Pizza. Love. Cigarettes. Monsters. Babies with two heads. Exploding bodies. The outlaw spirit of The Outsiders – plus rebel teens who battle mutant bugs in a bunker. Who can resist?

This book contains mature language and content.

Nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2015.

“You must read immediately. It’s an absolute joy. Scary, funny, sexy. Trust me.” Jake Shears

“A cool/passionate, gay/straight, male/female, absurd/real, funny/moving, past/present, breezy/profound masterpiece of a book.” Michael Grant
