Now, in the first book, I did get annoyed with Lennox, as he seemed to do anything to get himself in trouble, but in hind sight I think a lot of this was due to what had happened to him in recent months, but more importantly I think he believed he was worthless and unloveable..
However, in this second book, I think it was Will that I would get annoyed with - to me, in some ways it seemed like he was trying to take over Lennox's life, or rather totally organise everything, but without asking what Lennox actually wanted.
Things are rather fraught for them both, with Will's father disapproving about their friendship and especially their relationship, on top of where Lennox was living at the time. Things were just going along as usual, until a violent incident involving Lennox occurred. His saviour was the last person who he thought would help him.
Lennox was taken to Will's house, and it was there that he was able to recuperate, and it is now that their relationship seems to change, but for the better. Wills father was not pleased to have Lennox there, but I think he began to see a different person from the one usually portrayed.
As Lennox recovers, all talk turns to the colleges again, and Will is trying to decide where he wants to go, he has narrowed this down to a few choices. Lennox on the other hand has no idea about college, or rather he doesn't bother looking as he would not be able to afford to go.
However, things happen for a reason, and although he was hurt, it seems like this was a blessing in disguise, and there are a few surprises for Lennox in the works, but will he be brave enough to attempt what others know he can do? I really do feel for Lennox at this time, as I think he is scared of failing, but again the last person he would expect to help him does so and give him things to thing about.
This series is so different to what I usually read, but I was hooked as soon as I started reading. I actually read Go Your Own Way and then went straight onto With Or Without You, and I was pulled straight into the story of Will and Lennox. I can't wait for the next book to come out in the series, and that will then mean that I can go back and read these again!!
