At the beginning of the summer holidays Hattie discovers she is pregnant following a misjudged afternoon with her best friend Reuben. She distracts herself from arranging an abortion by getting to know her newly discovered elderly aunt who is struggling with dementia. This thought-provoking and well-constructed story offers the reader a journey within a journey as Hattie and her aunt take a road trip and human relationships are laid bare and painful histories revisited.
