Review quote

"This story is the best recount of a complete set of misadventures endured by your typical nuclear family. A hilariously captivating page-turner Murphy's Law would be proud of. I've never laughed so hard or so often reading a book before. " Amy Murphy, Digital Editor, Outback Traveller Magazine.

"From the moment we're introduced to the Casey clan and their junior crew of reluctant travellers it's hard not to love the honest, raw and remarkable similarities this delightfully rambunctious family have to the characters in our own families. A joy from start to finish and a refreshingly funny story of family's road trip into the Australian outback that's packed with chaos, craziness and the perfect amount of quirkiness." Corinne Brown, Digital Editor - Child Mags
