Road to Nowhere

by Nichola Rhys

Geoff Foster is a teenager like thousands, approaching his final school exams and hoping to go to university. Unlike many of them, he faces two complications. Firstly, he is disabled, paralysed down the left side of his body and prone to health problems. Secondly, his family is falling apart. The combined effect pitches him into a turmoil of confusion, fear and illness that threatens to destroy him. This emotionally intense story tells of Geoff's struggle to find his road and his direction in a life that seems destined to go nowhere - to learn to trust in friendship; to believe in himself and in his dreams. On the surface, it is a story about disability - but it goes beyond that to touch the common thread of isolation which defines the road taken by many otherwise apparently 'normal' lives.
