Maggot Moon

Maggot MoonMaggot Moon by Sally Gardner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Standish Treadwell seems a completely unique YA voice and as a character totally believable and there. He made me think of Riddley Waker or Huck Finn with his simple forthright cleverness. The malapropisms and odd turns of phrase, he uses in his narration to describe his world, and the people in it, create such individual and unusual images that it lends a dark humour, and a sense of hope, to what might have otherwise been a very bleak story.
