Description

Max Derbin lives in a household that can only be described as eccentric. Ever since his father died, he and his mum and brother have lived with Uncle Chuck and Aunt Lois, each family member more quirky than the next. A hilarious, off-the-wall story full of unexpected turns and great compassion, Past Tense is one of Ken Roberts' most thought-provoking novels.
