LoveReading View on 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

Hector Brunty, has a dilemma: a talking brain tumour. Henry Tumour advises Hector on haircuts, high-fashion, and tactics for snogging the best-looking girl in school, Uma Upshaw. Can Hector overpower his tumour in order to get what he really wants ... before they both go under the knife?
