A coming-of-age story, a love story, an earthquake story and a story of finding your way back from grief. Shortlisted for the New Zealand Book of the Year, YA Fiction.

Orphan Eddy Smallbone is grappling with identity, love, loss and religion. It’s two years since he blew up his school life and the earthquakes felled his city. Home life is maddening. His pet-minding job is expanding in peculiar directions. And now the past and the future have come calling – in unexpected form. As Eddy navigates his way through the Christchurch suburbs to Christmas, juggling competing responsibilities and an increasingly noisy interior world, he moves closer and closer to an overdue personal reckoning.

From the New Zealand author of The 10pm Question, Kate De Goldi, comes a richly layered Young Adult novel, written with humour and pathos: a love story, peopled with flawed and comical characters, both human and animal; and a story of grief, the way its punch may leave you floundering – and how others can help you find your way back.

Age range 14+; ISBN 9781910646922; 320pp; Paperback
