Summary
"Will Freeman wants an easy life with no responsibilities. But then he meets Marcus, an unusual twelve-year-old boy with serious problems. About a boy is a modern classic, a very funny story about a very serious subject: love. It's also a popular movie starring Hugh Grant."--Page 4 of cover
