Henry Tumour

Level 1

McGOWAN, Anthony
Visit the author's website

McGowan authentically portrays teenage angst, and he writes very sharp and witty dialogues, especially between Henry and Hector. There are lots of references (including Shakespeare), but you don't need to understand them to really enjoy the book.
