On the back sleeve of this acid green-covered book, Michael Grant exclaims: “Original, weird, sexy, thought-provoking and guaranteed to stir controversy. One hell of a book.”_x000D_
That about sums it up! This is a crazy novel that your mature readers will either love or they will think it’s ridiculous. The plot is simple: Austin and his best friend Robby accidentally unleash an army of gigantic(6-feet-tall), horny, praying mantises. See? Just a typical Saturday night for teens._x000D_
This novel is truly a wild ride that includes the end of the world, a horny teenage boy struggling with his sexual identity, life in a small town, defining friendship and a whole lot of humor that crosses the line into vulgar territory certain to offend many readers yet draw an entire other group of possible non-readers to uncover a story like no other._x000D_
This novel is like modern art. Some will see it as junk and others will see it as a successful experiment into the psyche of the teen and the realistic and ridiculous struggles they face._x000D_
Please be warned: there is strong, mature language and an abundance of sexual content.
