The One-in-a-Million Boy is by Monica Wood. Quinn Porter is a musician who has spent his life on the road. When his young son dies suddenly, his twice-ex-wife, guilts him into completing his son's Scouting commitment to help out a 104-year-old woman named Ona. As Ona and Quinn begin to build a relationship, Quinn learns to love the son he never understood, and Ona discovers she is still very much alive at 104. A heart-warming story with very lyrical prose. A beautifully written story about learning to live and love.
