About this product
- Description'How cool was Will Freeman?' Too cool! At thirty-six, he's as hip as a teenager. He's single, child-free, goes to the right clubs and kws which trainers to wear. He's also found a great way to score with women- attend single parents' groups full of available (and grateful) mothers, all hoping to meet a Nice Guy. Which is how Will meets Marcus, the oldest twelve-year-old on the planet. Marcus is a bit strange- he listens to Joni Mitchell and Mozart, looks after his mum and has never owned a pair of trainers. But Marcus latches on to Will - and won't let go. Can Will teach Marcus how to grow up cool? And can Marcus help Will just to grow up? 'A stunner of a vel. Utterly read-in-one-day, forget-where-you-are-on-the-tube-gripping.' Marie Claire 'About the awful, hilarious, embarrassing places where children and adults meet, and Hornby has captured it with delightful precision.' Irish Times 'It takes a writer with real talent to make this work, and Hornby has it - in buckets.' Literary Review
