    [synopsis] => The debut novel from Andrew McCarthy-actor, director, and bestselling author of Brat: An 80s Story-is a powerful story about family secrets, first love, the limits of forgiveness, and finding your way in the world.

 When fifteen-year-old Lucy Willows discovers that her father has a secret child from a brief affair, she begins to question everything she thinks she knows about her family. How could her father have betrayed them like this? How could her mother forgive him? And why isn't her sister rocked by the news the way Lucy is? Lucy can't bring herself to tell her friends, and when she tries to confide in her boyfriend, he doesn't understand. Fed up with everyone around her and desperate for answers, Lucy runs away to Maine-the home of her mysteriously estranged grandfather-to get to the bottom of her family's secrets and lies. Andrew McCarthy is the author of the New York Times bestselling travel memoir The Longest Way Home. He is an editor at large at National Geographic Traveler magazine. He is also an actor and director. He lives in New York City with his wife, three children, two fish, and one dog. Just Fly Away is his first novel. You can find him online at andrewmccarthy.com or on Twitter: @AndrewTMcCarthy. "Fantastic . . . The story's unexpected turns will keep readers rapt, and Lucy's voice-reserved, blunt, sarcastic-feels as bone true as that of any YA character in recent memory."

 -The New York Times Book Review

 "McCarthy sensitively explores the difficult process of learning to accept loved ones despite their shortcomings."

 -Publishers Weekly

 "A poignant, character-driven coming-of-age novel."

 -Kirkus Reviews


 "This is a moving coming-of-age story for young adults who enjoy calm, character-driven reading. It is also a title that should be flying off the shelves."
