Summary
As a boy, Nathan Penlington had loved 'choose your own adventures. So, when he discovered a job lot of the first 106 adventures for sale on eBay, he had to bid on them. When the books arrived, he lost himself in the old adventures. In the margins of the books, Terence, their previous owner, wrote jokes, hints for adventurers following the same stories as him - and, more troubling still, intimations of a tormented childhood: of the boys and teachers who had bullied him; of the things he hated about himself and had to improve; of his thoughts of suicide and his desperate need to find friends, be liked, and find somebody - anybody - to confide in. 'The Boy in the Book' is Nathan's poignant recreation of the discovery of the fragments of Terence Prendergast's diary, his quest to find the lost boy, and the friendship that resulted from their first meeting
