I thoroughly enjoyed WILL. WILL is sort of a coming of age novel set in the 1960's when WILL was in High School in rural NC. The book deals with the challenges of adolescence, as well as many of the prejudices of that time. As someone who was in school during this same time in rural VA, I could really identify with many of the events that Will experienced. The author is so accurate in his descriptions of events in Will's life, for example, an account of a visit to the County Fair and the High School Prom to name just two. There are questions and mysteries in Will's life that I will leave to the reader to explore. There were colorful characters that were well developed and this book really came alive for me. I found WILL to be a highly entertaining page turner and Highly recommend.
