ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Andrew McCarthy, Actor, Director, Editor at Large at National Geographic Traveler Magazine, and Author of The New York Times Bestselling Travel Memoir, The Longest Way Home.  He lives in New York City with his wife, three children, two fish, and one dog.  Just Fly Away is his Debut Young Adult (YA) Novel.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  A Debut Novel about one girl’s discovery of family secrets, first love, the limits of forgiveness, and finding one’s way in the world, written with wisdom and sympathy by Andrew McCarthy, Bestselling Memoirist, Actor, and Director.  When fifteen-year-old Lucy Willows discovers that her father has a child from a brief affair, a eight-year-old boy named Thomas who lives in her own suburban New Jersey town, she begins to question everything she thinks she knows about her family and her life.  Lucy can’t believe her father betrayed the whole family, or that her mother forgave him, or that her sister isn’t rocked by the news the way Lucy is. Worse, Lucy’s father’s secret is now her own, one that isolates her from her friends, family, and even her boyfriend, Simon, the one person she expected would truly understand.  When Lucy escapes to Maine, the home of her mysteriously estranged grandfather, she finally begins to get to the bottom of her family’s secrets and lies.  Fans of the rebels and antiheroes in the novels of Rainbow Rowell, A. S. King, and Meg Wolitzer will welcome this sharp, observant new voice in young adult fiction.
