Publisher's Summary

Francis is unhappy. Francis is picked on. Francis doesn't have a life, a hope, a chance. Francis was human once, but that's behind him. Now he's an eight-foot-tall locust, and all of Calliphora, Nevada, will shudder to hear him sing.

"Most of the stories display the unself-conscious dash that made Hill's novel an intelligent pleasure....Not just for ghost addicts." (Kirkus Reviews)

Incredible!!!

Let's take "The Metamorphosis" by Kafka, reimagine it an angry teenager and add a whole lot of detail.
I really enjoyed this story!
