Description

Chris Lynch has long been one of the most stylistically daring of young adult novelists, and in "Freewill", his innovative use of language and form redefines the possibilities of the genre. A story told in the second person, the voice is in the mind of Will, a boy who is living in a bewildered state following the deaths of his father and stepmother. The events of the story are dimly seen through the haze of interior dialogue brilliantly giving literary form to a young man's depression and subsequent healing. Urgent, passionate and utterly gripping, this novel of loss and bereavement, friendship and redemption is a novel as unusual and compelling as anything written for young adults for many years. The winner of the US Prinz Award and the recipient of numerous brilliant reviews in the US, "Freewill" will captivate and enchant readers with its brilliantly told story.show more
