Jack Tumor by Anthony McGowan

Hector is being hectored by an unlikely bully: a talking brain tumor. And itís not just a talking brain tumor. Itís a know-it-all, pain-in-the-arse, jibber-jabbering brain tumor that names itself Jack, and insists on coaching Hector through life even as itís threatening to take his life away. Itís a pretty good coach, actually. With Jack in control of Hectorís speech and brain chemicals, Hector suddenly finds himself with a cool haircut, a new fashion sense, and tactics for snogging previously unattainable hottie Uma Upshaw. But when Jack begins to force increasingly questionable decisions and behavior, Hector has to find a way to turn the tables Ė before itís too late for both of them.

Delightfully twisted, desperately funny, and deeply moving, this novel is also the winner of the Booktrust Teenage Prize in the United Kingdom.

Jack Tumor

I recently had the rare pleasure of presenting the Booktrust teenage prize to a novel which begins with the word "Arsecheese" and ends as a five-page cartoon strip. Anthony McGowan's Henry Tumour is a boisterous, anarchic, frequently vulgar comedy about a boy with a brain tumour. It is very, very funny. It is also a wise, sensitive and questioning novel about the opposing forces that make us what we are. Hector Brunty is a nerdy, logocentric boy whose mind tends to go on baroque walkabouts.
