Author(s): Hugh Brown
Will Clark thinks he’s a socially inept bookworm who just happens to enjoy cross-country running and taekwondo. But then his mother returns after a five-year absence overseas, and he has his first full-contact taekwondo fight, and the gorgeous comic-reading Conway Jones asks if she can be his maths tutor …
Will must reassess himself, and his past, as he reaches towards a new future and lets his dreams take flight.
