Publisher's Summary

Now a major motion picture from Universal Pictures.

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 at 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. And it seems to go quite well at first, until he meets an actual 12-year-old named Marcus, who is more than Will bargained for...

    "Like the movie, love the book"

    I hate it when I see a movie first and then read or listen to a book only to find out what I lived was added in Hollywood. This was NOT that situation. The movie is wonderful and I will always love it, but I am happy to report that the book provides more depth and resolution to each of the characters that I loved in the movie as well as insight from different perspectives. So glad I took the chance on it!
