QBD Reviews: The Boy in the Book by Nathan Penlington

rsz_isbn9780755365708It still brings shivers down my spine when I remember this is a true story.
Remember those “choose your own adventure” books you could collect as kids, and do exactly that, make the story into your own and decide your own path? There’s an old sense of adventure and possibility waiting to be captured. Nathan Penlington buys 106 books from the original series in second hand in hope of finding hope through a downward spiral in his adulthood, but what he uncovers in these books will turn into something beyond himself.

Discovering a sub story of dark thoughts from a 15 year old boy who originally owned the serious, Penlington becomes fixated and wants to find contact with this boy, to discover what happened to him. This read is quirky, compelling and will make you laugh, cry and sob.
