About a Boy
Too cool! At thirty-six, he's as 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 (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 novel. Utterly read-in-one-day, forget-where-you-are-on-the-tube gripping.
It takes a writer with real talent to make this work, and Hornby has it - in buckets.
About the awful, hilarious, embarrassing places where children and adults meet, and Hornby has captured it with delightful precisio'n.
