Review:

Occasionally a 'teenage novel' comes along which makes one reconsider the whole genre and its potential. Such a book is Melvin Burgess's Junk -- Robert Dunbar * Children's Books in Ireland * The most talked-about children's book for years * Mail on Sunday * Brilliantly and sensitively written, it encompasses the raw, savage and ecstatic world of the adolescent mind... a superbly crafted and important book * TES * Beautifully written * The Times *
