When your dad gets married again, it's a good thing, right? Everybody happy all round, right? Not when your new stepmother can't stand you. And when you don't think too much of her, it doesn't help either. That's bad enough, but then other stuff happens like new babies, and people going nuts. This fast-paced read is dynamic and gripping, perfect for teen readers who want all the characteristics of a long novel, dealing with teenage issues and tough topics, in a strong, condensed book. From a series written by some amazing authors, this book is everything a reluctant reader would want to get them engaged.
