Review: In this crazy, end-of-the-world romp, two high school boys discover their small Iowa town is not the “quiet” place it has always seemed to be. Written from the perspective of a young man trying to figure himself out sexually and religiously, these boys confront giant bugs and their own fears. They must save themselves, a girlfriend, a dog, and a few select others. The book is written using adolescent boys’ language and involves blunt topics.
