Elliott Bay Book Company says
An evening that should be excellent for young adult as well as older readers is in store, as Andrew McCarthy, known for an excellent memoir, The Longest Way Home, and for his work as an actor and director, visits with his much-anticipated first novel, Just Fly Away (Algonquin Young Readers). This is a story of family secrets, a fifteen-year-old girl discovering she has a heretofore unknown half-brother some years younger. Her own coming of age is taking place as she deals with what are revelations and realizations for her - this subtly and well-portrayed by Andrew McCarthy here.

“This family drama is appealingly narrated in Lucy's wry, confessional voice, and a romance she stumbles into with her friend's stoner brother is sweetly fumbling and awkward … A poignant, character-driven coming-of-age novel.” – Kirkus Reviews.
