The Boy with Two Heads
How would you feel if you woke up and found another head growing out of your neck? A living, breathing, talking head, with a rude, sharp tongue and an evil sense of humour. It knows all your darkest thoughts and it's not afraid to say what it thinks ...to anybody. That's what happens to eleven-year-old Richard Westlake, and life becomes very, very complicated. Part thriller, part horror, part comedy - this is one of the most riveting novels about fear and friendship that you will ever read. Andy Mulligan won the 2011 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, and his international bestseller, Trash, is now a major film - directed by Stephen Daldry and with screenplay by Richard Curtis.
