Will is thirty-six but acts like a teenager. Single, child-free and still feeling cool, he reads the right magazines, goes to the right clubs and knows which trainers to wear. He's also discovered a great way to score with women at single parents' groups, full of available (and grateful) mothers, all waiting for Mr Nice Guy. That's where he meets Marcus, the oldest twelve-year-old in the world. Marcus is a bit strange: he listens to Joni Mitchell and Mozart, he looks after his Mum and he's never even owned a pair of trainers. Perhaps if Will can teach Marcus how to be a kid, Marcus can help Will grow up and they can both start to act their age.

Jostain syystä tähän on aina jäänyt tarttumatta, vaikka olen kirjaa hyllyssä monesti katsellut. Ehkä siitä syystä, että elokuvan olen kuitenkin nähnyt varmaan kolmekin kertaa. Elokuvissa joskus + sitten se on tullut telkkarista, jolloin sitä on jumahtanut katsomaan.
Nyt kun tähän vihdoin tartuin, niin nopealukuinenhan tämä oli. Aika lailla samanlainen kuin elokuva - toki joitakin eroja oli.

A light pleasant read. It is just the right change of pace as I just finished a few heavier books before reading this one. I saw the movie years ago.
