THE POINT is an endearing coming-of-age new adult fiction novel that follows Willoughs (don’t ask about his real name!) throughout his first year of college. Willoughs is sarcastic, quirky, and possibly one of the most side-tracked angsty youth who has a lot to say but then perhaps nothing at all. Willoughs is part of a band and after a moment of restlessness one fateful summer day decides he wants to try something new which ultimately leads him to meet Alice. Alice is a free-spirited, yet strong-willed coed with a clouded past that makes Willoughs start to open his eyes of there being more to life than the one he grew up in within Fernwood.
