Book Description

12 Jan 2012
Find the blueprint and change it... "I suppose this is the bit where the hero regains consciousness, struggles to focus, and mumbles, 'Where am I?' Except I knew exactly where I was... Liam Creedy has not had the best of times at Patrick Freeman High. Now in his final year, he suffers at the hands of bullies and is rendered unconscious. When he wakes, he finds himself in a strange distortion of school life - the building has no main exit, the classrooms have become work places, the prefects are more like police, and no one ever mentions their parents. Now everything and everyone is in black and white; everyone except Liam and Mr Samson, the boy's aloof and mysterious guide in this nightmare world. Has he slipped into a parallel world? Is he really in a coma lying on a hospital bed? Or is he dead and in some place of limbo? As tension builds and the school moves nearer and nearer to all out war, Samson presses Liam to find the blueprint and change it - only then will he find the way out. Will Hadcroft weaves a tale that dares to confront one's right to be an individual in a world that demands conformity and uniformity. He questions the education system, the roles we are pressured to play in society, and the need to challenge accepted norms before it is too late.

5.0 out of 5 stars All hail !! The Holy Steamroller !!! 22 Feb 2012
Another rattling good novel from this highly original author. Every single page drips with adventure whilst at the same time challenging your own thought process on the society we live in, and have created. If that all sounds a bit heavy! fear not, kids and adults will enjoy this equally. The story itself is engaging from first page to last. Too many novels i have read drone on with unnecessary narrative, boring me to death until something actually happens, thankfully Will Hadcroft never falls into this trap. Writing the story in "first person" gives it energy and helps get the underlying messages through. I couldn't help trying to second guess what was coming in the next chapter.

The story builds and builds into an inevitable catastrophic conclusion, all the time leaving you wondering, is it real? A dream? a parallel universe?

An enormous millstone cascading down a mountain, schools at war with each other fighting with acid fuelled water pistols, a religion where followers worship the holy steamroller !!!! Whatever goes on inside Will's head, he manages to download it into wonderfully crafted stories. Enjoy !! "See yer, don't wanna be yer !"

5.0 out of 5 stars Cause and Effect 21 Nov 2013
I just finished `The Blueprint' last night, it's been my bedtime book for the last few weeks and I just want to thank Will Hadcroft for making me wake up every morning full of joy and happiness- joy and happiness for knowing that I won't have to go to school today nor ever again! It brought back so many memories of the stifling, narrow minded, tedious and insufferably dull school days of my childhood and I am so glad to discover that I wasn't the only one to have felt the way I did! I think this novel is a wonderful achievement and deserves to be in every school library and made into a children's drama serial, sadly I think it will be regarded as far too subversive to ever get commissioned- which in it's self is a huge recommendation!
