Felix Knuttson, twelve, is an endearing kid with an incredible brain for trivia. His mom Astrid is loving but unreliable; she can’t hold onto a job, or a home. When they lose their apartment in Vancouver, they move into a camper van. Felix must keep “home” a secretWhen he gets to compete on a national quiz show, Felix is determined to win — the cash prize will bring them a home. But what happens is not at all what Felix expected. 

 

We’d also like to congratulate our other authors, Polly Horvath (Very Rich) and Cale Atkinson (Sir Simon: Super Scarer) on their nominations.
