A new year, but same old bad aim. Don't worry if none of the book bullets hit you... pewpewpew!
Happy New Year.
I shall come along attempting to dodge the bullets as they whizz towards me.
Happy new year! I'll sit here in the corner just in case ... though I think some of your bullets found me anyway last year!
>1 Darth-Heather: Happy new year, I'm looking forward to following your thread for another year. :)
Happy new year (said as I cower behind the nearest set of bookshelves...)
Wishing you a happy new year filled with lots of book bullets ready for you to fire at anyone nearby! :D
The One-In-A-Million Boy by Monica Wood
well, this was splendid. I have a new favorite character - Ona, who is 104 years old and delightfully sassy. She accepts assistance from a local Boy Scout to help with household chores. She begins to grow attached to the boy (who I keep picturing as Russell from Up).
Ona gets caught up in reminiscing about memories from her long life that she hadn't thought of in years, but then one day the boy doesn't show up, and she learns that he died suddenly. (this isn't a spoiler, it's right on the back cover). His father comes to break the news to her and ends up promising to finish his son's chores. This is when the plot really gets going, and adventures ensue.
Recommended to everyone who enjoyed A Man Called Ove.
