Summary

A boy hopes to get his father back with his family after he leaves them to live with another woman.

I'm Dan Hope and deep inside my head I keep a list of things I want to come true. For example, I want my sister, Ninja Grace, to go to university at the North Pole and only come back once a year. I want to help Sherlock Holmes solve his most daring mystery yet. And if it could be a zombie mystery, all the more exciting.

I want to be the first eleven-year-old to land on the moon. I want my dog to stop eating the planets and throwing them up on the carpet. And finally, the biggest dream of all, I want my dad to love me.

Since his dad ran off with the lady from the chip shop, Dan's life has gone a bit strange, what with his sister acting mean and Mum's new boyfriend keeping secrets. And now - even stranger - his dad has turned up as a presenter on TV. So Dan decides to sort out his messy, muddled, madcap family, starting with getting his dad back.

But as one genius plan after another goes pear-shaped, Dan fears that his most important wish will never come true... Until he starts to realize that sometimes your real family aren't always the people you share your name with.
