Mrs Wilcock, Kings of Books! King\'s School Girls' Division


Release is a beautiful book, charting one day in the main character - Adam's - life. Over the course of a normal day, Adam spends time with key people in his life, and on each occasion a significant event or conversation occurs. Central to the book's success I think, is how likable Adam is, meaning the reader wants to know what will happen next, and really wants the best for him. The book covers friendship, families, LGBT+ relationships and workplace harassment. There is a parallel story line involving the ghost of a local girl recently murdered, I didn't think this added anything to the book as a whole and it felt like a distraction from the main story.
