About the book: 
What do you get when you cross a painfully awkward son, lofty comedic ambition and a dead best friend?
 
Norman.
 
Norman and Jax were a legendary comedic duo in waiting. They had a plan to take them all the way to the Edinburgh Fringe in just 5 years’ time. But when Jax dies before they turn twelve, Norman decides a tribute act for his best friend just can’t wait… so he rewrites their plan:
 
1. Look after mum
2. Find Dad
3. Get to the Edinburgh Fringe
 
Sadie won’t win a mother of the year award anytime soon and not knowing exactly who her son’s father is isn’t topping her list of achievements. But if performing at the Fringe and finding his dad is what will help Norman through… they’re going to make it happen.
