Just Stay Away
coming Fall '23 from Thomas & Mercer

Craig has two simple goals this summer: be a great stay-at-home dad to his daughter, Alice, and finish his book. He just hadn’t anticipated how hard it would be to write with a seven-year-old bouncing around the house. 


And then one day Alice tells him she met a new friend, Levi, a boy who appeared in their backyard from out of the woods that border their property. The kid seems a bit strange, but Alice is content to play outside with him all morning, every morning. Alice is happy, Craig gets some precious writing time—Levi could be a real game changer for Craig’s summer.
