What in the world did I just read? Andrew Smith’s Grasshopper Jungle is a speculative fiction YA novel that features the very bisexual character of Austin, who is in love with his best friends Robby and Shann. Oh, and did I mention that the world is being overtaken by oversized, horny, vicious grasshoppers?
The words “masturbation” and “horny” are used quite frequently in this book, if that is something you are concerned about. Otherwise, it’s pretty fantastic and you’re not quite sure where the story is going to go until it gets you there. A page turner, for sure!
