Once again blending multiple story strands that transcend time and place,Grasshopper Jungleauthor Andrew Smith tells the story of 15-year-old Ariel, arefugee from theMiddle East who is the sole survivor of an attack on his small village. Now living with an adoptive family in Sunday, West Virginia, Ariel's story of his summer at a boys' camp for tech detox is juxtaposed against those of a schizophrenic bomber and the diaries of a failed arctic expedition from the late nineteenth century. Oh, and there"s also a depressed bionic reincarnated crow.
