Henry's Tumour

by Anthony Mcgowan

Children's & YA Fiction

LoveReading Expert Review of Henry's Tumour

Winner of the Booktrust teenage prize in 2006, Henry Tumour is exceedingly funny, compulsive, thought-provoking, challenging, dark and tragic by turns. As Mal Peet, another author of brilliant teenage fiction said, ‘Henry Tumour is a boisterous, anarchic, frequently vulgar comedy. It is also a wise, sensitive, questioning novel about the opposing forces that make us what we are’.

Henry's Tumour Synopsis

Henry Tumour turns out to be the perfect alter-ego, advising Hector on haircuts, high-fashion, and tactics for snogging the best-looking girl in school, Uma Upshaw. Controlling his speech and brain chemicals is quite enough, but soon Henry Tumour is trying to make more decisions about Hector's life than he'd like.
