About the Book

Hattie, living in Paris, has just been dumped by her boyfriend when she receives a phone call from her eleven-year-old niece, Thebes. Hattie’s sister Min is having a particularly dark episode and Thebes asks Hattie to come and look after her and her brother Logan. When Hattie arrives back in Canada, and realises that she is out of her depth, she hatches a plan to find the children’s long-lost father. With only the most tenuous lead, she piles Logan and Thebes into the family van and heads south. Hilarious and heart-rending, The Flying Troutmans tells the story of a fractured family on the verge of spinning off its axles and a road trip that might just keep them together.
