Will In Scarlet is about a boy named Will Shackley who in the beginning was a mischief maker. His life gets turned around when he goes on the run and in the process joins the Merry Men. Will’s main goal is to kill Sir Guy of Gisborne. Will also persuades the Merry Men to rob the Shackley castle, which in turn, gets the Merry Men some silver coins. Will gives the silver to the poor and they become fugitives.
I really liked Will In Scarlet, although I didn’t like the few bad words it had. It was exciting, scary, and hopeful all in one. The author used interesting words to entice you to read this book. Will was a believable character for this genre, as were all the other characters. I would recommend this book to ages 12 and up.
