Will trades his lack of enthusiasm toward children for a date with a truly beautiful woman who is also a single mother

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 twelve-year-old named Marcus, who is more than Will bargained for...

Inventing a son got Will into a single parents support group, but rather than a fabulous new sex life, he found someone else's very real son--a 12-year-old with a lot to teach about being a grown up. From the acclaimed author of "High Fidelity" comes this national bestseller that "GQ" calls "Clever and winning".
