The unexamined life is not worth living,” said Socrates (400 BC).

Zak Towlson tells a personal story through a collection of anecdotes in a vibrant language. The book is funny and poignant at times as the subject of adolescence warrants. It shows first-hand, how difficult the coming of age can be in the 21st century and how important it is for any young person to understand and address their mental health in a constructive way.

Zak Towlson is a young author, lyricist and an aspiring musician. Lost in the Woods of School is his first novel, a direct result of lockdown 2020.

Zak lives in Nottingham and shares his time between his studio apartment and his family home.

    I saw this book and not really knowing what to expect I thought I’d give it a go. At the start I thought it would just be about music as perhaps shown by the front cover but it was much more than this. Zak’s ability to write and create humour through serious situations is amazing. After reading only one page of this book I couldn’t put it down. I finished it all in one sitting, great read, fantastically wrote and what an important message it portrays !

  • Alicia Breen

    Zak Towlson’s book Lost in the Woods of School is a book worth reading. The author has done well to draw in the readers attention by keeping it light hearted, funny and relatable. How Zak links the book to mental health struggles during school is really unique and can help individuals like him know that they aren’t alone with what they are going through and that help is out there. I would recommend this book to everyone.

  • Renata

    it was such a good read about the first hand secondary school experiences, drama of coming of age and so much more. Zak has interwoven humour, seriousness, silliness and reflection into his narration. Real characters are vibrant, interesting and at the sane time so everyday.
    Already looking forward to the next book.
    Meanwhile, enjoy read.

  • Olaf The Polak

    Good humour and a great point of view of how kids see school life. One of the best books I have read.

  • Jaqueline

    Pleasantly surprised to say the least, what an easy and enjoyable read.

  • Unknown

    I feel as though Zak held back a bit with some of these stories, as enjoyable and well written it was, I feel as though he hadn’t said everything he wanted to say. Despite this, I highly recommend this read to any young person trying to find purpose or who is struggling with their mental health and to any adult or parents trying to get a better understanding of the younger generation! Very well done Zak, you should be very proud.

  • Paula Paciorek

    I would really like to recommend the book! It was a joy to follow Zak's many youthful adventures. Zak's hardships were portrayed in the book as well, hardships which probably many adolescents can identify themselves with. The book was funny and quirky, and I will definitely read it once more! A delight!

  • John Cock

    Outstanding! In love from start to finish!
