Meet 10-year-old Zac – a boy on a mission – in Katy Regan’s Little Big Man . . .

You can't see the truth from the outside, that's what I've worked out.

Ten-year-old Zac has never met his dad, who allegedly did a runner before he was born. But when his mum lets slip that he’s the only man she’s ever loved, Zac turns detective and, roping in his best friend, hatches a plan to find his father and give his mum the happy-ever-after she deserves. What he doesn’t realize, though, is that sometimes people have good reasons for disappearing . . .

Little Big Man is a story about family secrets and fierce, familial love. It's about growing up and being accepted; grief and lies, and the damage they can do. Most of all though, it’s about a little boy determined to hunt down the truth; a boy who wants to give the Dad he’s never met a second chance to be a father – and his mum a second chance at love.

Katy Regan broke my heart and put it back together again with Little Big Man . . . Humour, poignancy, secrets, love – everything you could ask for from a book
A beautifully written love story, with authentic, compelling characters. You’ll love Katy Regan’s new book
