Hughie Mittman is in search of forgiveness.
His troubled mother has just died, and it's all Hughie's fault. His ill-tempered father, now more distant than ever before, is doing nothing to persuade him otherwise.
Ignoring the advice of his loyal friend Nyxi - who he met at hospital following a brutal encounter with a lawnmower - Hughie does his best to navigate this unfamiliar version of his life and figure out a way to atone for what he has done. But during his quest for clarity, he ignores the one question he truly wants answered: was his father telling the truth when he said Hughie was adopted?
Hughie Mittman's Fear of Lawnmowers is a heart-breaking story, but also an uplifting one - exploring grief and reconciliation, the power of friendship and of the acceptance that there are thing we cannot change, but the future can still be bright.
