This award-winning classic teen novel gets a vibrant new look.
     The love story of two runaway teenagers, Gemma and Tar, and their struggles with heroin addiction. Melvin Burgess' most ambitious and complex novel is a multi-faceted and vivid depiction of a group of young people in the grip of addiction. It is told in many different voices, from the addicts themselves to the friends watching from the outside who try to prevent tragedy.
     Winner of the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.

About the Author:

MELVIN BURGESS was born in London and brought up in Surrey and Sussex. He has had a variety of jobs before becoming a full-time writer.

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 *
