A thought-provoking and compassionate novel from the award-winning author of Boy Overboard, Girl Underground and the Felix stories: Once, Then, Now, After, Soon and Maybe.

In the beginning there was me and Mum and Dad and the twins.
And talk about happy families, we were bountiful.
But it came to pass that I started doing sins.
And lo, that was when all our problems began.
