The Savages by Matt Whyman
Published June 6 2013 Hot Key Books
The Savages are your average family unit. Father Titus is a businessman, Mother Angelica, a shopaholic and a bit of a whizz in the kitchen. Grandfather's up in the attic, teenage Sasha has her first boyfriend, brother Ivan is full of mischief and baby Katya just said her first word..."mince".
There is nothing the Savages enjoy more than sitting around the table, having a family feast - just be glad you don't get invited! The family have a somewhat peculiar taste in food....
When Sasha's boyfriend persuades her to try vegetarianism for a month, the carnivorous clan begin to unravel. Add to this a missing model and a curious private detective and the Savages really are in a stew!
This is a darkly humorous YA novel, full of great characters (I especially love Ivan) and laugh-out-loud moments. Hope this review has made you hungry for more!
