Review

Hector Brunty is a boy with a problem: he has a brain tumour. But that's just the beginning, as Hector's tumour, christened Henry, talks.

Not only that, Henry starts to take control of Hector, running his life for him, which is fine when he is advising him on hair styles and girls, but not so good when he makes Hector swear loudly in Tourette's syndrome fashion.

Henry Tumour is certainly a memorable book: it's funny, shocking, and thought-provoking, too. Just be warned that the language is extreme throughout!
