Little Big Love is a story about family, secrets, love and forgiveness. More importantly, it's about how grief can either bring them together or tear them apart.  10 year old Zac has never met his dad, Liam, and all his family will tell him is that his dad "did a runner" before he was born. Zac's grandmother only speaks of Liam with anger, and his grandfather Mick won't speak of him at all.  One night, after a particularly horrid date, Zac's mum Juliet reveals that the only man she's ever loved was Liam.  Zac decides that he's going to find his dad and bring him back into the family fold. While Zac is planning his super-secret mission, he's being bullied by classmates for his weightc faces losing his best friend to illness, and fights his own family in order to get information about his dad.  Regan expertly weaves the story back and forth between the three narrators: Zac, Juliet, and Mick. Equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking, this novel is highly recommended.  Great for fans of About a Boy.
