The Lovereading4Kids comment
Families! They come in all kinds. While the Savages, with their neat-as-a-pin house and immaculately turned out children, might seem very much the same as any other family, they are actually completely different. When Angelica starts going out with a new boyfriend, like many other teenagers, she is sure that her parents will disapprove. When she tells them he is a vegetarian, she knows she was right to worry! Matt Whyman tells a dark story with terrific humour and verve.
The Savages by Matt Whyman
Sasha Savage is in love with Jack Greenway - a handsome, charming, clever ...vegetarian. Which would be acceptable if it weren't for the fact that Sasha's family are very much 'carnivorous', with strong views to boot. Behind the respectable family facade all is not as it seems. Sasha's father Titus rules his clan with an iron fist, and although her mother Angelica never has a hair out of place, her credit card bills are shocking and her culinary skills are getting more ...'adventurous' by the day. As for Sasha's demonic brother Ivan? Well, after accidentally decapitating a supermodel in their family bathroom his golden boy image is looking wobbly. To the outsider the Savages might look like the perfect family, but there is more to them than meets the eye. When the too-curious private detective Vernon English starts to dig for darker truths, this tight knit family starts to unravel - as does their sinister and predatory taste in human beings...
