One Brother Shy by Terry Fallis
Alex MacAskill is not your ordinary 24-year-old. He is intelligent, socially awkward and a devoted son to his mother Lee. He works as a software engineer in Ottawa at Facetech, creating a revolutionary facial recognition program. When Alex’s mother passes away, he discovers a family secret that alters his life drastically and leads him on a journey from Ottawa, to London and then Moscow. Terry Fallis has written a humorous, witty story about identity, family and redemption.
