Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith
Austin is in love with his girlfriend, Shann, and his best friend Robby, which is totally confusing -- but his bigger issue is the end of the world, which he and Robbie sort of unleashed... In the form of six-foot tall praying mantise soldiers... who only want to have sex and eat.
Which, when Austin thinks of it, isn't all that different from what human teens want...
Anyway, it's the end of the world, and Austin's decided to record it all for history.
This dark comedy was the Fiction winner of the 2014 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, as well as a 2015 Printz Honor recipient.
