Landon Grey wakes up one morning, at the age of twenty-two, a college dropout, widower and single father. Even without a plan for his future, he’s sure this isn’t it.
Only problem? This is it.
His aloof wife has just died in a car accident, her high school sweetheart dead in the passenger seat beside her. And his pudgy, two-year old Elmo loving, juice guzzling daughter Sadie tugs at his pajamas as he hides under the covers, willing his life to be something else. Anything else.
He looks to his wife for help, only to remember they’ve left her at the funeral home.
While his mother threatens to suffocate him with a mixture of concern and overly enthusiastic hugs and his distant in-laws make demands on his time for the next sixteen years, an unexpected encounter with a support group full of women old enough to be his grandmothers propels a reluctant Landon on a different path. With the help of an odd girl who claims to be a support group junkie, Landon is forced to leap over a new and welcome set of emotional hurdles on his way to becoming the father and man he needs to be.
"support group junkie"?? you can't ever use that and not hope for comparisons to Chuck Palahniuk.
you've got no specifics here, nothing that makes me think "oh I want to find out what happens next". Landon sounds like a self involved putz, so I hope he's at least funny.
