Will the Word Eater
Will has a lot to say, but he knows from experience that it's not always safe to say what's on his mind. At home and at school, with his father and his friends, Will has been gulping down his words for a long time. He doesn't know how many more words he'll be able to swallow. Then he meets a writer who won't take back his words, and Will understands what being brave can mean. As Will's words begin to flow, he tastes for the first time what self-expression without fear can be.
