This is the story of Will, 36, a man who knows more about being a child than being an adult, and Marcus, 12, a boy who knows more about being an adult than being a child. This is the story of their unlikely relationship and how they each help the other to live a fuller, happier life. Definitely cute, definitely well-written, and definitely an easy read. I'd recommend this for anyone in the mood for a mental break.

Definately a 5 star read! Even better than the movie which I loved. I understood the characters more with the book and yet all my fav one liners from the movie were there for my enjoyment too. I actually laughted out loud alot (which I don't do very often).
