Product description


The outstanding teenage novel of the autumn, arresting and original and written in a singular voice, is Sally Gardner's MAGGOT MOON... Narrated by a boy with dyslexia, Standish Tredwell, it takes you inside the workings of his mind...as well as offering up something much darker: a parable about the perils of totalitarianism. Despite its simple language, its a disturbing read, but it also has a hopeful message - that a teenager, especially one with dyslexia, can have agency in the world. --Lorna Bradbury, The Telegraph

Dazzling, chilling, breathtaking. A perfect book. --Meg Rosoff

startlingly original, horribly gripping … an inspirational [story] which deserves many prizes --Amanda Craig, The Times
