Winner of the Governor's General Award for fiction, Miriam Toews writes endearing novels that are amusing and full of surprising turns. The Troutman family is facing serious change. With their mother remitted to the mental hospital again, precocious 11-year-old Thebes and rebellious 15-year-old Logan place a call to their aunt Hattie in Paris, who has just been dumped by her boyfriend. This motley trio heads south across the border into the States on a road trip to find the children's long-lost father. Along the way, all of the travelers come to see themselves and each other in new and unexpected ways.More
"Emulating the comedic stylings of indie hits like Little Miss Sunshine provides a wealth of material and a breath of fresh air for Canadian novelist Toews." (Kirkus Reviews)
"A road novel helped along by a lovably nutty cast." (Publishers Weekly)
