Juliet, her mother and her father have each held onto a soul crushing secret None of their secrets are the same and the reveal of any one of these secrets could send their whole house of cards tumbling down on Zac s head.I was completely enad with this novel From start to finish, I loved the characters the way Regan told wielded the three narratives Zac, Juliet and Mitch Zac s grandfather so expertly really made this story memorable.I absolutely adored Zac and Teagan Regan concocted a perfect blend of sweetness, determination and troublesome kid logic in her ten year olds Basically, I just think adults give in, she said, putting her hair behind her ears, They give up too soon because they just don t have the energy It s why they need us And I really connected with Juliet I felt like I could sit down with her and have a cup of tea like old friends Her insecurities, such as those concerning her son, her weight and her loneliness, made her feel far than a character in a book she felt real Whatever it is, my Get Zac Happy campaign might just be working and I want to support him by setting an example, but truth is, I think I find it harder than him. This novel had just the right doses of heartwarming and heartbreaking if you are looking for a wonderful beach read or a book that will leave you with a smile on your face, make sure to pick this one

reading this It s fast paced and not overly bogged down in drama While there are some dark moments and family drama, there s a lot of humor mixed in to lighten things up Zac s character is what I love most about this book He s such a sweet little boy who doesn t have a mean bone in his body He is bullied non stop, which is hard to read On the upside, he does have a lovely friendship with Teagan His

readily admit these are the types of stories I am drawn to Once in a while I need a break and I read that this was a feel good story However, I soon found that it was not a light read There s bullying, alcoholism, grief that causes some of the characters to make mistakes that will make them carry remorse and secrets for years Child narrators appeal to me, mostly for their capacity to many times see things as they are and tell it like it is So of course, I especially liked ten year old Zac s narrative as he struggles with bullying over his weight and wants so much to find the father he never knew There are two other narratives his mother Juliet , struggling to be a single parent and dealing with her own issues of low self esteem, and his grandfather Mick who deeply loves his grandson and keeps a secret for fear of losing him I connected with Zac and Mick from the start, but it took me a while to warm up to Juliet The beginning and ending were much stronger than the middle of the book, which felt slow at times, thus the 3.5 I was, however so vested in Zac s search for his father and the last part of the book was particularly well done so I rounded up to 4 stars

anticipating, but so worth it The book was told from three different points of view 10 year old Zac, his mother Juliet, and his grandfather MickZac s father pulled a runner before he was born, or so he thinks what really happened that tragic night that led to the death of Juliet s brother Jamie Juliet and both her parents have secrets they have kept the past 10 years, secrets that could possibly tear the family apart.BUT Zac is determined to find out all he can about his father.Zac was an enchanting 10 year old boy with a heart of gold loved his obsession with fax and his friendship with the equally delightful Teagan I felt so much for him especially when he was bullied for his weight and my heart broke for his desire to find his father but truly my absolute favorite part of this book was the charming friendship between Zac and Teagan everybody needs a Teagan in their lives, she was just an exceptional character and some of her insights far surpassed her 10 years Juliet was also a very real and relatable character, the kind of character I d love to go out to lunch with I won t judge what she did and did not tell her son, because I have never been in that situation and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that she loved her son with all her heart and wanted nothing but the absolute best for him same goes for grandpa Mick The stress and the burden brought on by the secrets that these to were keeping was so unfortunate.The last 20% of this book was absolutely priceless I was smiling the entire time unless tears were running down my face an emotional ending to this beautiful story filled with hope, forgiveness, family, and love many thanks to Berkley for my copy of this stunning book flag 107 likesLike see review View all 16 comments Jul 24, 2018 JanB rated it

recruits his best friend Teagan to help him The plan, of course, is not just to find his father, but to re unite his parents.Zacwhat a sweet boy with a big heart Although Zac s insights seemed particularly astute given his age, I fell in love with him and my heart broke over the bullying he endured over his weight His hope and optimism were endearing I loved how he collected facts, and they were quoted at the beginning of chapters I really loved his best friend Teagan too.what a great friend she was.Juliet is a single mom whose heart was broken when Zac s dad abandoned them, but she is doing the best she can I was a little frustrated with her at times but I also thought she was portrayed realistically Her love for her son knew no bounds, something that as a mom I can relate to Juliet s own mother is still grieving the death of her son, Juliet s brother, who died 10 years ago, and their relationship is somewhat strained.Mick, the grandfather, is holding onto an explosive secret that he d rather not reveal Juliet and Mick both love Zac deeply but each of them has kept secrets from each other and from Zac Secrets that, if revealed, have the potential to cause a lot of damage The overriding themes were love and forgiveness But the sheer number of issues threaten to overwhelm the story These include bullying, weight and body image, grief, family secrets, alcoholism addiction, asthma, and unhealthy living conditions This makes the book sound rather grim, but there is enough humor and sweetness to offset the seriousness The story has some unexpected twists and ended on a hopeful note This is the type of book that demands that type of ending and I was satisfied I admit that at one point my eyes welled up.Recommended for fans of heartwarming and sweet family stories It was a perfect read for me in between some heavier reads Many thanks to Elisha at Berkley Publishing for a copy of this book for review All opinions are my own you can see this and other

of his family, not his mother, Juliet, or his grandfather, Mick, or his grandmother talk about his father, the only thing he was told when he was younger is that before he was born his father, Liam, did a runner At school, things are even worse, his schoolmates tease and taunt him mercilessly, pick on him, which escalates as time goes by His mother sees him as a normal healthy, growing boy, but he is teased about being overweight, and when his teacher contacts Juliet to talk about Zac s weight, about him losing weight What she considers baby fat, the school is considering obese The Zac is teased, the unhappy he becomes, the he turns to food the one thing he knows that ties him to his father He loves to cook.Eventually Juliet sees the need for change, and starts to encourage healthier eating, some changes in their lifestyle, reaching out to a former boyfriend for assistance in the exercise department In order to motivate him, Juliet agrees to answer a question about his father after they ve run a specified time In the meantime, her head is spinning about what she will say There are so many secrets that have yet to be revealed, so many things unsaid, and so many hurt feelings that will surface.Zac and his best friend Teagan join together on this mission to find Liam, a mission that is fraught with mishaps, but also brings them closer to the truth And, as they draw closer to the truth, the adults are worried about how Zac will deal with the truths behind Liam s leaving They are also worried about how each of them will deal with revisiting that painful time I loved Zac, loved his mission to track down his father and find out the truth about why he left The chapters narrated by Zac were my favourite, although I also loved those by Mick, as well Juliet was a little bit too scattered for me, and seemed to be wallowing in her misery a bit too much Overall, this was an engaging and heartwarming story of a young boy s unwavering search to find his father, secrets, absolution, family, friendship, and, most of all love.Pub Date 12 JUN 2018Many thanks for the ARC provided by Berkley Publishing Group flag 50 likesLike see review View all 29 comments May

buried beneath all these emotions The story is told from three points of view that of Zac, his mother Juliet, and her father, Mick Katy Regan does a superb job with those three different voices, which isn t always easy for a writer These characters are so well done and believable I just loved Zac and his best friend, Teagan, who is his partner on his Find Dad mission Although the tone is warm hearted and even laugh out funny at times, Ms Regan delves into some hard topics, such as childhood obesity, bullying, single parenting, alcoholism, shoplifting, poor living conditions and life threatening childhood illness I found this story so utterly charming It brought back to me what it was like to be ten, thinking I knew so much but being unable to fathom adults and their actions And Zac s deep down longing for the things it seems he can never have I remember that especially.And just when the reader thinks all the secrets have been revealed, there s another shocking admission from

But as he grows up, he becomes determined to discover the other half of his family.There were definitely a lot of things going on in this book, and while I understand that realistically a family could deal with multiple issues at once, I feel like it made the book a little messy because there seemed to be multiple plots going on at once The book covered alcohol addiction, bullying, obesity, binge eating, grief, and of course, family the two big ones were Zac being bullied for being overweight, and him finding out the truth about his father I feel as though one of these plots should have been treated with significance with the other, but because they were both often mentioned and were never really intertwined, I felt almost as if I was reading two different stories.The characters were okay Zac s narration is definitely in the tone of a child, and it almost made me wonder if this book would be suited towards a middle grade reader I did like the adult tone of Juliet and Mick s perspectives, but their voices weren t nearly as interesting as Zac s The author definitely succeeded in making the styles align with the intended narrator.I didn t really love the characters too much, and while I understand that everyone was dealing with different issues, and that grief is such a powerful emotion, I didn t feel as connected to them as I could have Instead, I was frustrated and sometimes, downright annoyed with just how extremely self centered many of the characters could be.Overall, this was a very typical child finds parent story, but with a whole lot dysfunction thrown in Lots of people definitely enjoyed this, so ya ll can still give it a try, but it wasn t for me flag 6 likesLike see review Jul 14, 2018 Jamie rated it really liked it review of another

doesn t happen everyday Full disclosure it wasn t until I was a third of the way through that I really began to feel invested, but I think that was due to external factors gardening, y all but once I
