The Bee Sting


The Barnes family is in trouble. Dickie’s once-lucrative car business is going under but he’s spending his days in the woods, building an apocalypse-proof bunker. His wife Imelda is selling off her jewelry on eBay, while their teenage daughter Cass, seems determined to binge-drink her way through her final exams. And twelve-year-old PJ is putting the final touches to his grand plan to run away from home.

Where did it all go wrong? A patch of ice on the tarmac, a casual favor to a charming stranger, a bee caught beneath a bridal veil―can a single moment of bad luck change the direction of a life? And if the story has already been written―is there still time to find a happy ending?
