'This is a truly thought-provoking thriller, channelling the menace of dystopian favourites such as Maze Runner and The Hunger Games.'
‘So tense doesn’t quite cut it. It’s SO GOOD!’
A.F. Steadman, author of Skandar and the Unicorn Thief
‘Like Hunger Games but better'
Sue Wallman, author of Lying About Last Summer
‘Dark and thrilling’
‘A brilliantly written page-turner, HappyHead is a compelling love story set in an all too possible world where no one can be trusted and teenage happiness is not an aspiration but a must. Sharp and unsettling, Silver’s debut had me rooting for Seb and Finn from the off.’
Amy Beashel, author of The Sky Is Mine
'HappyHead is a heart-pounding must-read. Thought-provoking and absorbing, it is nearly impossible to put down.'
'Cancel your reading slump, because Josh Silver has arrived. With a voice that will suck you in from page one, you’ll be rooting for Seb from the edge of your seat and he won’t let you go until the very last line. An unforgettable debut that recaptures the thrills and spills of great YA dystopian fiction.'
'Josh Silver has written an incredible book! Seb is such a charismatic and endearing main character with a unique voice that makes you root for him immediately. It’s a book that grows in tension and action with each page, with a brilliantly evil concept and phenomenal twists. The "Love Island" meets "Squid Game" concept is fantastic and it only gets more compelling the deeper into the story you get. I honestly can’t wait to read the next instalment! (there better be a next instalment!!)'
'Silver deftly weaves in the familiar platitudes – and the genuinely good, evidence-based advice – alongside more sinister elements. This debut is both fun and thought-provoking.'
Huge thanks to Josh Silver and Liz for such a great session with our Year 9's this afternoon.
He was honest, personal and totally relatable for the students. Such a refreshing change!
Would love to have him in again! 😊
