The Boy with Two Heads by Andy Mulligan
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A living, breathing, talking head, with a rude, sharp tongue and an evil sense of humour. It knows all your darkest thoughts and it's not afraid to say what it thinks...to anybody. That's what happens to eleven-year-old Richard Westlake, and life becomes very, very complicated. Part thriller, part horror, part comedy - this is one of the most riveting novels about fear and friendship that you will ever read.
