Milo doesn’t quite have it all together. His acting career has stalled. His Latvian girlfriend dumped him. His miserable father has vanished. And Pablo and Wallace – and then Wallace’s mother too – seem to have moved in to his house. Really, the only person Milo likes is Robertson, the autistic eleven-year-old who lives next door. So when Robertson gets bullied and his dad moves out, Milo is finally spurred to action. Milo being Milo, though, even his best intentions go awry, and soon Robertson’s dad is in the hospital, Milo’s lost in the woods during an acting experiment and Gustaw, his dad, may have returned from the dead.

Praise for Lemon:

‘Cordelia Strube is a terrific novelist ... Strube doesn’t do sugar. She does vinegar. The condiments of the moment need to be sour, and we should honour Strube for her currency.’
Toronto Star

‘Bitingly funny ... In introducing readers to the indomitable Lemon, Strube has taken us on a remarkable trip – part literary kaleidoscope, part emotional roller coaster – into the life and mind of a young girl searching for a love she can’t quite bring herself to believe in.’ – National Post
