Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–5
Ginny's parents have recently divorced, and the fifth grader wishes that they would get back together. When she realizes that her dad has a girlfriend, she fakes being sick and calls her mom from school, even though it is her week to be with her father. Her mother gets to the bottom of the problem and suggests that Ginny talk to her dad and try to work it out. All of the problems, including the fight she has with her best friend, are easily resolved by the end of this short chapter book, providing a perhaps inauthentic view of the ease with which relationships can be mended. The text is easy to read, and the story line has enough action to hold children's interest. The simple line drawings are well executed and add to the book's appeal. Although written specifically to help youngsters who are dealing with divorce, this title is less didactic than most children's self-help books. In the back of the book, a psychologist gives readers advice about how to handle having a dating parent. It will be useful to both children and their parents.
