Abner is one hundred and nineteen years old. He is desperately trying to make his one hundred and twentieth birthday so he can see his beloved Cubs win the World Series. It is the year 2020, and Abner is the only living person to remember the last time the Cubs won the World Series. Matt and Jason are two pre-freshmen who have taken on a summer assignment: interview an older man. They dejectedly move toward the senior home and their first meeting with Abner. Before the summer is over, they will be cheering with Abner for the re-born Cubs. Whether you’re a Cubs fan or not, you’ll enjoy this story: Abner’s Story.
