This summer, 12-year-old Alex is taking over his dad’s
postal delivery job. What could go wrong?
In order to get his family back together, Alex comes up with a
brilliant plan: if Dad finally writes the novel
he’s always talked about, he’ll be happier again and his parents
will fall back in love.

Dad just needs to get away from work for a while to do it.

Alex tricks his dad into thinking he’s been selected for a creative
sabbatical, and starts to do the postal deliveries himself.
But it’s harder than Alex had ever realized, and
there are the bullies who throw his letters in the canal, an overly
suspicious boss, and a lot of angry dogs to avoid.

He finds unexpected help in Willow, a girl on
the canal who offers to share the work … but has a dark
secret that might derail everything.

As Alex’s ruse starts to fall apart, he needs his dad more than
ever. Meanwhile, his dad comes to understand that the thing he
needs most isn’t publishing a novel … it’s Alex.

From the Carnegie nominated author of The Soup Movement

Perfect for fans of Frank Cottrell Boyle and Ben Bailey Smith

Based on Ben’s own experience working as a postal carrier!
