Blogiversary Giveaway #2: Win a copy of The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood
Sadly I'm not in a position to review every book that I am sent, or sometimes Louise, Emma or I get sent the same book, which is the case for this afternoon's giveaway prize as both Louise and I were sent a copy of The One-in-a-Million Boy. So Louise is going to review it at some point for the blog so I've decided to give my copy away as part of the blogiversary celebrations.
The story of your life never starts at the beginning. Don't they teach you anything at school?
So says 104-year-old Ona to the 11-year-old boy who's been sent to help her out every Saturday morning. As he refills the bird feeders and tidies the garden shed, Ona tells him about her long life, from first love to second chances. Soon she's confessing secrets she has kept hidden for decades.
One Saturday, he doesn't show up. Ona starts to think he's not so special after all, but then his father Quinn arrives on her doorstep, determined to finish his son's good deed. The boy's mother is not so far behind. Ona is set to discover that even at her age the world can surprise you, and that sometimes sharing a loss is the only way to find yourself again.
As with all giveaways on the blog, this one is open to existing followers of the blog as a thank you for your support. The winner will be selected at random and contacted for their postal address to enable me to post the book to you. NB. Please do not add details of this giveaway to other sites without my permission.
