THE OFFICIAL BLURB:
When I bought a set of Choose Your Own Adventure books, the last thing I was expecting to discover was an adventure all of my own. But scribbled in the margins were notes from the little boy, Terence, who had originally owned them. They spoke of a troubled and unhappy childhood. Here was a cry for help. And, twenty years after they were written, I decided I had to answer that cry.
The Boy in the Book is the incredible true story of what happened next.
Nathan Penlington instantly reminded me of Don Tillman from The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Quirky with a unique outlook on ‘the little things’ that cross one’s life path.
Not many people would obsess over a note found in a second-hand book. Not many people would compulsively search for its author, simply to return it twenty something years later. How many people would do this AND simultaneously learn more about themselves than they ever knew before, identify and conquer personal flaws and right past wrongs as part of the process??
Only Nathan Penlington would do ALL this and then publish a book about it. It worked. A strange yet rewarding journey was seemingly had and people are reading all about it in The Boy in the Book.
