The Boy in the Book

Entrant 2021



A long lost diary falls out of a book. What would you do?

'The Boy in the Book' tells the true story of Nathan Penlington's discovery of a child's enigmatic diary hidden inside an old 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book bought on eBay. But much the like the books in which it was found, what happens next is all down to YOU.

Along with three filmmakers who will document your journey, you must help Nathan to unravel the mystery of the diary - but are its pages the only thing to be holding secrets?

Filmed over two years and told over 10 chapters, there is no correct way through 'The Boy in the Book'. Different decisions can lead to very different endings… but every path you take actually happened.

Now you just have to choose wisely.
