How would you feel if you woke up and found another head growing out of your neck? What's more it's 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 exactly what happens to eleven-year-old Richard Westlake.
How would you feel if you woke up and found another head growing out of your neck? What's more it's 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 exactly what happens to eleven-year-old Richard Westlake. Prepare to be stunned. Part thriller, part horror, part comedy - this is one of the most riveting novels about fear and friendship that you will ever read, straight out of the storytelling Head of Andy Mulligan(author of the amazing Trash) directly to your very own Brain.
"Blisteringly funny, and sad" Financial Times website "[A] simple, funny and very engaging premise ... Mulligan rewrites tragedy as a triumph, and turns the story into a neat way to explore friendship and tolerance." -- Josh Lacey Guardian "One of the best storytellers" Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books "Mulligan certainly delivers in this extraordinary examination of grief ... A highly original, emotionally-charged black comedy/thriller. A worthy successor to Mulligan's excellent Trash." -- Sally Morris Daily Mail "[A] poignant, imaginative take on adolescence" -- Amanda Craig The Times, Saturday Review
