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. Download and start listening now!

    " This is kind of an odd, sweet, occasionally disturbing book. It reminds me a bit of the Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. Very interesting characters, particularly the children. I liked it. "

    " Love this book so far. Memorable characters and an interesting twist on the archetypal journey. A must read for those who appreciate characters that are somewhat "defective". "

    " Very Funny!! I read the pre-edited copy from work and it is funny. I was going to share it, but there were so many good parts, I had to mark them and make the book my own. I wonder how the published one differs?? Amazing how serious insanity and family disfunction can still be so damn funny. "

    " I was sooooo disappointed by this one. To be honest, I still haven't finished it. I will one day bc I'm still hopeful that it will turn around. Just not doing a thing for me. "
