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

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.

    A captivating read! This takes you on a journey that keeps you engaged and intrigued the whole way through. A good story written by a great author. Definitely worth the time.

  • Calvin turner

    A hilarious look into the hardships and battles life, as a young man at school, can throw at you. Further, this book explains how the author courageously tackles and learns from all the challenges that are thrown his way: these include both physical and mental challenges that arise during his years at secondary school and just after. I personally and wholeheartedly can relate to a lot of the content within this book and I’m sure that the same could be said for any other person who has/is, lived/living as a teenager. While reading through the pages I was filled with nostalgia, feelings of happiness and sadness and above all laughter. Through great imagery and carefully explained experiences the author managed to send me on my own rollercoaster ride back to when I was a similar age, and for that I would like to thank him. Finally, the best thing about this book for me is the message each and every reader can take away from it. For me that message is…when you’re feeling shit, go and get yourself a lightskin friend called Calvin and do some dumb shit with him to make you feel better again!

    It’s been a pleasure so far Zak. Hopefully this is the last book on mental health you make and the first book on hilarious and brilliant life experiences you’ve had. Until the end bro, Calvin.
