Half-Asian teenager Grace (but she'd prefer it if you called her "Gray" instead) is not a perfect little supermom-in-the-making like her older sister Jessica, and would rather become a marine biologist than a mother--although she does understand how to take care of her special-needs kid brother Squid better than anyone else in her family. When her mother Belinda abruptly runs out on her family and flies across the Atlantic in order to study crop circles in the English countryside, Grace is left alone to puzzle out her life, the world, and her unique place within it.

With a warmth and a boisterous sense of humour reminiscent of Miriam Toews' A Complicated Kindness and Peter Hedges' What's Eating Gilbert Grape? author Corinna Chong introduces us to two lovable and thoroughly original female characters: persnickety, precocious Grace, and her impractical, impulsive mother Belinda--very different women who nevertheless persistently circle back into each other's hearts.

Calgary-born Corinna Chong is a writer, editor, visual artist and graphic designer based out of Kelowna, B.C. Her writing has appeared in Grain, NoD, Echolocation, and The Malahat Review. She is currently a professor of English Literature at Okanagan College and edits Ryga: A Journal of Provocations.
