Breaking Records

51q3z3emk2l._sy400_.jpgThe One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood is a novel I’m recommending to everyone. Am I ever grateful I brought it home from the library because I had no previous knowledge of it and it turned-out to be simply wonderful.

The story is about an eleven-year-old boy who befriends an 104 year-old woman who was born in Lithuania and raised in the U.S.  The boy, unlike others his age, encourages the elderly woman to try to get her name in the Guinness book of world records.

What follows is an incredibly touching, beautiful story.  I will say no more in order not to divulge the plot and conclusion of the novel. It is one not to be missed!
