Isaac's Will by Kris Durso, is one of the best books I have ever read.  It is a great novel for teens and adults alike.

The
story is about a fifteen year-old boy named Will.  His dad commits
suicide and has a nervous breakdown which alters his whole life.  Soon
Will and his mom move from their suburban home in Upstate New York to a
shack in a nearby small town.  At his new school, Will must endure a
vile bully, and at home his mom is addicted to drugs.  but he discovers
a mysterious person that tries to help him through his troubles.

Durso
did a spectacular job with this book.  I like how Will has many
troubles that he must overcome.  He also adds a lot of detail
throughout the story about all of the characters pasts.

I give Isaac's Will a five out of five stars.  I strongly reccomend reading this book.

Isaac's Will by Kris Durso is a great example of foreshadowing
in a teenager's life. I loved this book even though it was targeted
more towards boys. It was also kind of hard to relate to people
smoking, drinking, and doing drugs, because no one in my life has those
addictions. Teens and adults will devour this book!


This novel is about a boy named Will that lives with his mom
because a recent freak accident occurred to his father. Will's mom
packs everything up and they move from Rochester, New York to a
graveyard in Seneca Falls. There Will struggles with making new
friends, defending himself from enemies, and living with his mom's
addictions. You may think he's all alone in figuring out his decisions,
but he's really got a great friend waiting.


Over all, Isaac's Will was a great thrill. After every chapter you're left wondering what happens next.

Isaac's Will, by Kris Durso, was a pretty good book.

The story was about a boy named Will who's father had committed suicide, so they moved to an old graveyard caretaker's house Rochester, NY.  Will's mother became an alcoholic after her husbands death.  Will is always being pestered by a bully.  The story is constantly depressing.  I liked how Will stuck through till the end

I think that this story teaches people to solve their problems with violence, which is what Will does.  The ending is spontaneous. I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.
