In a story that moves between the past and the scene of the rape, Keir attempts to defend his character from the monstrous crime of which he has been accused. But the anecdotes from Keir's senior year at high school fall short of giving the innocent and 'good-guy' picture, Keir is determined to paint of himself. Instead he is revealed somehow as a morally ambiguous and deluded young man. In this extraordinary book, Chris Lynch has pushed the boundaries and set a new standard in YA fiction. It is a gripping and masterfully written story about a subject very few people will dare to explore. Any person who reads it will have much to think about.

'Lynch has developed his character to heights that are rarely reached in teenage fiction and has merged superbly the complexities of life with the paranormal. Freewill is original and gripping.' Independent on Sunday (review of Freewill) 'This is a powerful novel...leaves a lasting impression.' Alison Hurst, The School Librarian (review of Freewill)
