Customer Review

on June 24, 2013
An intriguing journey through the early life of an ambitious, intelligent and determined young man as he struggles with dyslexia though a linear education system.
But dyslexia can be a boon as well as a disability. Let out in the big wide world, using his ability to think laterally he wangles, finds back doors & and bends the rules in order to achieve the success, his teachers said he would never have.
Then, only to have it all stripped away by a system that doesn't like people who think outside the box.

Being dyslexic myself, I found myself sympathising with the treatment of the main character during his school years (though I hasten to add, my school days were not quite as draconian as Will's).
This book stands as both an inspiration and a warning to all young people with similar learning difficulties.
