Trailer Tuesday: Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

I'm currently reading Andrew Smith's Grasshopper Jungle, so I thought I'd make it this week's trailer.  It's a really weird, but also funny and compelling book about six foot killer grasshoppers.  Yup. You read right. Killer grasshoppers.

Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith

From the publisher:

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.

  1. I really liked Grasshopper Jungle, although Passenger is still the best of Andrew Smith's books, imo. (Passenger is the *harmony* to The Marbury Lens; it doesn't make sense on its own.)
