About the book:

I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voicenot because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mothers death, but because he was the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.

In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boysbest friendsare playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boys mother. The boy who hits the ball doesnt believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is Gods instrument. What happens to Owen, after that 1953 foul ball, is extraordinary and terrifying.
