Once again blending multiple story strands that transcend time and place, Grasshopper Jungle author Andrew Smith tells the story of 15-year-old Ariel, a refugee from the Middle East who is the sole survivor of an attack on his small village.
Now living with an adoptive family in Sunday, West Virginia, Ariel's story of his summer at a boys' camp for tech detox is juxtaposed against those of a schizophrenic bomber and the diaries of a failed arctic expedition from the late 19th century. Oh, and there's also a depressed bionic reincarnated crow.

Funny but bizarre story read by a fantastic narrat
- Benjamin McIntyre-Coble
Brilliant Story and Fabulous Narrator
Andrew Smith has done an amazing job interweaving time, character, and story. This has to be my favorite book yet. And, it doesn't hurt that MacLeod Andrews is an absolutely amazing narrator: each voice is clearly distinct, his tonality and timber are a pleasure.
The sock puppet scene is absolutely brilliant.
