Books for Boys

This season Macmillan Library is all about boys and their adventures in growing up.  The boys whose DIY robot bests MIT, the boys who attend a terrifyingly real boarding school (in the future), and the boys who use gaming as a means of salvation…   We’re getting to know them all. Won’t you join us?
