It’s Only the End of the World
By (author) J. A. Henderson
Charlie thinks he’s a pretty normal guy, until someone breaks into his room one night and reveals that everything he’s ever thought about anything is wrong.1. His parents are boring — nope — they’re actually highly skilled computer hackers with a history of radical action2. He has no special talents — nah — he’s been jacked up with the Jekyll serum, making him near enough a super hero (minus the spandex)3. The world is basically a good and predictable place — wrong again — there’s an evil corporation determined to bring on THE END OF THE WORLD… and kill him4. The person who broke into his room is weird — OK, that one is true. But Daffodil (not her real name) has a bossy, all-powerful artificial intelligence attached to her brain stem which is bound to make anyone a little different.In this pacey, ironic thriller, brilliant dialogue meets slapstick fight scenes, in a teen version of Christopher Brookmyre, and the question of who’s controlling whom is startlingly, hilariously and constantly revised.
