From two-time leacock medal winner terry fallis comes a funny and smart new novel about destiny--and what it means to forge your own path. Adam coryell is your average high-school student--well, except for that obsession with fountain pens--when his life changes forever. Based on a study by a quirky swedish professor that claims that every human being, regardless of athletic inclination, has a body that is suited to excel in at least one sport, it turns out that adam is good--very good, in fact--at golf. Even though he'd never even picked up a golf club. Almost instantly, and with his coach, hard-nosed bobbie davenport by his side, adam and his new-found talent skyrocket to a prodigy-level stardom that includes tournament titles, sponsorship deals, throngs of fans following his every move, and fodder for tabloids. But here's the catch: adam doesn't really like golf. And as the life he once knew slips away--including the love of his life, the dream of being a writer, and everyday normalcy--he can't help but wonder if all this success and fame is worth it . . . Or if it's enough for him. Heartwarming and funny, sweeping and entertaining, terry fallis's new book takes readers on a journey of self-discovery.
