Facts are everything to eleven-year-old Freddie Yates: once you know a fact it’s yours to keep. After his grandmother dies and Freddie discovers his biological father might be alive and well in Wales, he decides to follow the facts. Together with his best friends, Ben and Charlie, he sneaks off on the adventure of a lifetime (or at least, the summer holidays) to track down his father.
Freddie doesn’t expect any miracles. But when the three unwittingly set off a chain of inexplicable events via an onion-eating competition, a few superhero costumes, and a group of very angry antique thieves, Freddie discovers that some things can’t always be explained – and sometimes what you’re looking for has been with you the whole time.
This book is suitable for readers between 9 and 12 years of age.
Propulsive and hilarious, The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates is a heartwarming story about the true meaning of family.
