More About This Title Bottom Drawer


Fifteen-year-old MacKenzie Kuper finds relief from his troubled relationship with his stepfather via the Internet. "MacKid," as he calls himself, meets "2Cool" in cyberspace, and the two quickly become good friends. Unfortunately, events from the past and the present propel the boys into their own life-and-death situations. Told through a series of interviews, reports, letters, memos, and cyberchat, this book will keep readers enthralled as they follow Mac through his painful journey to maturity. Second in the trilogy which began with the award-winning Looking For A Hero.

• Review - The Globe & Mail
"Boyd unravels a psychological mystery of great complexity. It is a bravura performance that also encompasses numerous contemporary issues without ever becoming an 'issue' novel. The paradox of Bottom Drawer is that a novel with what seems like a case of attention-deficit disorder, a novel of bits and bytes, can move with such steadiness and grace towards its very satisfying resolution. As a novel, it is daring and deep. Bravo."

• Review - The Toronto Star
"...a powerful, sophisticated book..."
