Overview

A nimble debut novel featuring a magical Niche and a motley cast of neighbourhood misfits.

When fifteen-year-old Mutton is robbed at gunpoint while working in her mother's Hamilton thrift store, the thief makes off with an item that she knows isn't meant for him, hurling Mutton and her family into a summer of remarkable and heartbreaking events. From fighting unscrupulous developers to first loves to the anguish that comes from never knowing what your final words to a loved one might be, Saints, Unexpected reminds us of the magic that comes with each opportunity to begin again.
