The House of the Scorpion is a science fiction young adult novel by Nancy Farmer. It is a story about the struggle to survive as a free individual and the search for a personal identity. It won the U. Printz Honor Book. The idea was originally from a short story that Farmer wrote for an anthology, but she withdrew and decided to expand it after realizing it was too closely tied to her own life. The book is not as long as Farmer would have liked because of its young adult audience.
