The House of the Scorpion Paperback Duology
Discover the National Book Award, Newbery Honor, and Printz Honor-winning modern classic and its riveting sequel--together in a collectible paperback boxed set for the first time!

Matt Alacrán was not born. He was harvested.

His DNA came from El Patrón, who is 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 grows up and struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, and has to make bigger decisions than he ever imagined. Through Matt's page-turning adventures, Nancy Farmer tackles some of life's most enduring questions--what it means to be human, what we owe to each other, and how to find hope in even the darkest situations.

This electric paperback boxed set includes:
The House of the Scorpion
The Lord of Opium
