Marcus Sedgwick reviews The Last Summer Of The Death Warriors by Francisco X Stork

Sedgwick struggles to identify the American tone in this novel, and in doing so fails to draw attention to the fact that the author is Mexican born, and his subjects usually Hispanic. Although I haven't yet read this book, I can't help but feel that its tone must be somewhat different from "American teenage fiction" in general...

There's something about American teenage fiction that I can't quite put my finger on... ...There is a particularly American voice, or at least, there's something about the voice of many of the American young adult titles I've read recently, which The Last Summer of the Death Warriors shares...
