What it's about: In a small town in Iowa, a boy named Austin and his best friend, Robby, have somehow let an army of six-foot-tall praying mantises loose, and they're very hungry, and very, uh, horny.
What readers say about it:
"It’s so funny and weird and different and one of my all time favorite books ever." — laurag45b038b6a
"There aren’t many sci-fi books out there for young LGBTQ teens, and when there are, the character in question is usually just a caricature of a real person. In Grasshopper Jungle the main character is torn between his male and his female best friends, a situation many people find themselves in." — swordwieldingthespian
