Feeling pressures from their families, two English teenagers run away together when they discover they are expectant parents.
What Nigel says:
The story of Getting Free came out of knowing some young people who were involved with my neighbours who were famous mountain climbers.
These young people were into climbing and martial arts and extreme sports. I’m not at all interested in those things, so I thought it would be good for me to try to write about people who were completely different from me and it was really exciting to create two characters I liked and admire, Peter and Johanna, and to try to see the world from their point of view.
