The One & Only

Publisher: Anchor Canada
The #1 New York Times bestselling novel about love, loss, and the ties that bind from the bestselling author of Where We Belong, Something Borrowed, and Baby Proof.
     Shea has always lived in the orbit of her best friend Lucy Carr's family. Lucy's parents had been Walker University's prettiest cheerleader and star quarterback, and Lucy's dad went on to become the indomitable and beloved Coach Carr, one of the winning-est coaches in college football. Mrs. Carr was the elegant and kind all-around surrogate mother, fundraiser and therapist for the team. Together they are like local royalty, so even if football weren't a religion in their Texas town, it would still be the center of Lucy's, and by extension, Shea's life. It is practically a foregone conclusion that Shea will marry Lucy's brother Lawton, if Shea can ever break it off for good with Miller, the cutest (and dumbest) guy in Texas. But when Mrs. Carr dies soon after a brief and terrible bout with cancer, it sets off a chain of events that upends Shea's very existence. Written with intelligence, warmth, and wit, The One and Only is a luminous novel about the choices we make in life and love, for better or worse, from one of our most beloved writers.
