Summary
Grasshopper Jungle is smart, cool and laconic contemporary young adult fiction. I read somewhere that human beings are genetically predisposed to record history. We believe it will prevent us from doing stupid things in the future. This is my history.

Just like it's always been
Summary
"Austin Szerba narrates the end of humanity as he and his best friend Robby accidentally unleash an army of giant, unstoppable bugs and uncover the secrets of a decades-old experiment gone terribly wrong"--
