Book #45: The One-in-a-Million Boy

I would not have picked this book except that it was a couple bucks on Kindle, and it turned out to be an enjoyable read. The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood is the story Ona Vitkus, a 104 year old immigrant woman who is assigned to the titular boy as a Boy Scouts project. The story revolves around Guinness world records, the complexities of family, and finding friendship even when you’re the outsider and a little different. It was a sweet book, in the vein of A Man Called Ove,¬†and an easy read for late nights.
