Me, My Dad, and the End of the Rainbow 

Benjamin Dean

Debut MG novel focusing on LGBTQ+ themes about the relationship between Archie and his father when everything Archie knows changes.

My name’s Archie Albright, and I know two things for certain: 

My mum and dad kind of hate each other, and they’re not doing a great job of pretending that they don’t anymore.

They’re both keeping a secret from me, but I can’t figure out what.

Dad’s acting weird, Mum’s acting hysterical, and I’m in the middle wondering how I can fix this mess.

And that’s when I found the flyer, the one that fell out of Dad’s pocket and gave me this whole idea in the first place.

If what I’ve seen is anything to go by, then the answer might just be at the end of the rainbow, an adventure away.

With the help of my best friends, Bell and Seb (who’s reluctant to come at all, but that’s a whole other story), we’re going to figure out this secret once and for all, even if we have to break a few rules to do it.
