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!

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.

Happy New Year! May all you books be wonderful.

>10 Darth-Heather: Wish I'd donned my Kevlar! I loved the movie Up, btw. (Okay, it's now on my OverDrive wishlist.)
