Susin Nielsen

Susin Nielsen got her start feeding cast and crew on the popular television series, Degrassi Junior High. They hated her food, but they saw her spark for writing. Susin has since written for many Canadian TV shows and received critical acclaim for her young adult novels. She won the prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award in her native Canada for The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen, and in 2017 won the UKLA Book Award. She lives in Vancouver with her family and two very destructive cats.

Felix Knutsson is nearly thirteen, lives with his mother and pet gerbil Horatio, and is brilliant at memorising facts and trivia. So far, pretty normal. But Felix and his mom Astrid have a secret: they are living in a van. Astrid promises it’s only for a while until she finds a new job, and begs Felix not to breathe a word about it. So when Felix starts at a new school, he does his very best to hide the fact that most of his clothes are in storage, he only showers weekly at the community centre, and that he doesn’t have enough to eat. When his friends Dylan and Winnie ask to visit, Felix always has an excuse.

But Felix has a plan to turn his and Astrid’s lives around: he’s going to go on his favourite game show ‘Who, What, Where, When’ and win the cash prize. All he needs is a little luck and a lot of brain power.
