Short chapters illustrated with bright cartoon drawings cover many important concerns and offer explanations of the divorce process. Topics range from how to deal with negative emotions, family changes, and new living arrangements, to tougher issues such as violence and financial troubles. The text has a compassionate tone, and sprinkled throughout are answers to questions that readers might have as well as snippets of advice from girls who have found what works for them. A few write-in quizzes are included. This book promises to be a helpful guide.-Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library

I purchased this book because my 9 year old granddaughter asked for it when her parents separated. I read it first. It covers many types of situations a child may encounter when parents divorce. The book does not discuss who is right or wrong. It does not take sides. I liked the fact that it helps a child not to get caught in the middle or take sides. Though written for girls, a boy could also benefit by reading the book. It answers so many of the questions a child wants/needs answered, but may not know how to ask. I have my opinions based on religion, but religion doesn't come into play in this book. It simply focuses on the child to help her cope with the situation, her feelings, and the changes in her lifestyle.

I am 13 and I actually asked my mom to buy this for me. It read/skimmed it and I thought it was a really good book. It is for girls who's parents are going through a divorce and how to deal with it. I would recommend this to girls who are struggling. Even though I am not struggling anymore I thought it was a great read.
