'Okay, tell me which do you want: to be able to fly or to be invisible?' This question leads to thirty years of discoveries, extraordinary strengths and closely guarded secrets. "To tell you the narrative concerns a family whose members have superpowers is only to graze the surface of a moving and beautifully realised meditation on what it is to be an ordinary human being". (Australian). "A wonderful novel: imaginative, intelligent, empathetic...Like a cross between The Corrections and The Slap". (Sydney Morning Herald Shortlisted for the 2012 Encore Award).
