This is the story of the greatest love, ever....

J. J. Smith, Keeper of the Records for The Book of Records, is an ordinary man searching for the extraordinary. J.J. has clocked the world’s longest continuous kiss. He has verified the lengthiest single unbroken apple peel. He has tasted the world’s largest menu item. But J. J. has never witnessed great love.

That is, until he comes to a tiny town in the American heartland. Here J. J. discovers a world record attempt like no other. Piece by piece, a farmer is eating a Boeing 747 to prove his love for a woman. But when J. J. unexpectedly falls in love with the same woman, a woman as outwardly cynical as he is, J. J. learns why records are made to be broken...and why the greatest wonders in life can never be measured.
