With all this news of a meteorite falling to the ground in Russia it seemed to make sense that this recently published book be the Mummy Barrow Book Club Selection for March. Alex, our central character is hit on the head by a meteorite at a young age and it quite literally changes his life.
This is what Amazon says about this book:
A tale of an unexpected friendship, an unlikely hero and an improbable journey, Alex’s story treads the fine line between light and dark, laughter and tears. And it might just strike you as one of the funniest, most heartbreaking novels you’ve ever read.
Alex Woods knows that he hasn’t had the most conventional start in life.
He knows that growing up with a clairvoyant single mother won’t endear him to the local bullies.
He also knows that even the most improbable events can happen – he’s got the scars to prove it.
What he doesn’t know yet is that when he meets ill-tempered, reclusive widower Mr Peterson, he’ll make an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make the best possible choices.
