For the first 10 years of Freja’s life, she and her mother Clementine have roamed the Arctic in search of zoological wonders.

Happy, content, together. Freja and Clem. Clem and Freja. But now, everything is changing, and Clementine must send Freja away to live with her old friend Tobias, a bestselling crime writer and, quite possibly, the most absent-minded man on earth.

Tobias isn’t used to life with a child, and Freja isn’t used to people at all, but together they’ll stumble into an Italian adventure so big that it will change things forever …

Award-winning Australian author Katrina Nannestad returns with a delicious new series about family, friendship and finding yourself.
