9780099488231: Henry Tumour (Definitions)

WINNER OF THE 2006 BOOKTRUST TEENAGE PRIZE

It wasn't my choice: Henry was in charge.

As if school bullies and his mum's tofu sandwiches weren't enough for Hector Brunty, he now has another dilemma: a talking brain tumour.

Henry Tumour turns out to be the perfect alter-ego, advising Hector on haircuts, high-fashion, and tactics for snogging the best-looking girl in school, Uma Upshaw. Controlling his speech and brain chemicals is one thing, but soon Henry Tumour is trying to make more decisions about Hector's life than he'd like.

Can Hector overpower his tumour in order to get what he really wants . . . before they both go under the knife?

Review:

"For style and wit, it is head and shoulders above most teen fiction published this year" (Amanda Craig The Times)

"I loved, loved, loved this book. It's vivid, it's anarchic, it's unbearably cool . . . It's also very, very funny. There were moments when I had to put it down because I was howling with laughter . . . And if so much hilarity weren't enough, it's also very clever" (Jill Murphy thebookbag.co.uk)

"A book to get teenage boys reading for the hell of it . . . A dark and funny book" (Phil Hogan Observer)

"Definitely the funniest, most obscenely wise book I have read in a long time" (Theo Temple, Booktrust Teenage Prize judge The Times)

"Every writer hates to hear the words "stunning new talent" applied to someone else, but in the case of Anthony McGowan nothing else will do" (Meg Rosoff)

From the Publisher:

Henry Tumour is the winner of the 2006 Booktrust Teenage Prize
