The House of the Scorpion
$12.99
With this deluxe collectible paperback edition, rediscover the National Book Award, Newbery Honor, and Printz Honor-winning modern classic about what it means to be human.

Matt Alacrán wasn't born. He was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, the drug-lord ruler of the country of Opium. Most people hate and fear clones like Matt--except for El Patrón. El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself.

As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, and realizes escape is his only chance to survive. But escape from the Alacrán Estate is no guarantee of freedom.
