About a Boy Hardback
by Nick Hornby
Part of the New Windmills KS4 series
'How cool was Will Freeman?' Too cool! At thirty-six, he's hip as a teenager. He's single, child-free, goes to the right clubs and knows which trainers to wear.
He's also found a great way to score with women: attend single parents' groups full of available mothers, all hoping to meet a Nice Guy. And that 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?
