'If you care about something you have to protect it. If you're lucky enough
to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.'
Eleven-year-old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in
Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend's
mother. Owen doesn't believe in accidents; he believes he is God's
instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is both
extraordinary and terrifying.
