Publisher Description

A wise, hilarious novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Dickens and Prince, Funny Girl and High Fidelity

Will Freeman may have discovered the key to dating success: If the simple fact that they were single mothers meant that gorgeous women – women who would not ordinarily look twice a Will – might not only be willing, but enthusiastic about dating him, then he was really onto something. Single mothers – bright, attractive, available women – thousands of them, were all over London. He just had to find them.

SPAT: Single Parents – Alone Together. It was a brilliant plan. And Will wasn’t going to let the fact that he didn’t have a child himself hold him back. A fictional two-year-old named Ned wouldn’t be the first thing he’d invented.

About a book

This is a novel about a boy named Will and a man named Marcus... Wait, I mixed that up. The story tells the struggles of a boy named Marcus who seems to be an outcast of sorts as he and his hippy mom move to London. Through a tangled web, Marcus meets Will and slowly become acquaintances that utilize one another to make their life easier.

This is a great novel, as a guy who rarely reads, nights would go by where I would have to put my phone away because my eyes could barely keep open as i read into the early morning hours.

It seems to be a short book, and not life changing. If you can find it at your local library I suggest you pick it up, not necessarily worth the 12 or 13 dollar prices on iTunes.
