Summary, etc.:
"A heartfelt contemporary debut novel set in Syria, Calgary, and Cape Breton. Tinker Gordon doesn't want anything to change. He thinks that if he holds on tightly enough, his family, his tiny Cape Breton Island community, his very world will stay exactly the way it has always been. But explosions large and small--a world away, in the Middle East, in the land of opportunity in western Canada, and in his own home in Falkirk Cove--threaten to turn everything Tinker has ever known upside down. Set variously in the heart of rural Cape Breton, on the war-torn streets of Aleppo and in a Turkish refugee camp, in the new wild west frontier of the Alberta oil patch, and in a tiny apartment in downtown Toronto, Tinker's family, friends, and neighbours new and old must find a way to make it home. In her adult fiction debut, Alison DeLory ponders a question as relevant in Atlantic Canada as anywhere in the world: where and how do we belong, and what does it take to make it home?"-- Provided by publisher.
