Nosy Parker

Nosy Parker

by Lesley Crewe

A would-be child detective searches for the truth about her mother—in a new novel with humour and sadness, from this beloved Cape Breton writer.

Expo ’67 is in full swing in Montréal. Audrey Parker has moved with her dad to a whole new neighbourhood to spy on. Audrey is articulate, disarming, forthright—and nosy! Scribbling down her observations, she bikes among stray animals, free-range kids, and adults both vicious and wonderful. And walks us with her across the threshold from childhood to adolescence.
