In the Making free pdf Ten-year-old Randal Thane is distressed to be taken from his mother, his governess and his home and sent to prep school. But once there, he discovers an adult world he had never before imagined, and falls unwillingly but entirely under the spell of a charismatic older boy, Felton, who will introduce him to all the pleasures, pains and perplexities of first love. A unique, enchanting and complicated coming-of-age story about the passion between two young boys, "In the Making" is widely hailed as G. F. Green's masterpiece, and is now in print for the first time since its original publication in 1952.
