Sadie blogs about her Wicked Sister (WS), Dreadful Awful Dad (DAD), and Mean Old Mom (MOM). Unfortunately, she has plenty to discuss because DAD and MOM are divorcing, and MOM moves with the girls to another town, where the teen starts her sophomore year. She uses the blog to keep up with her old pals and to make friends at her new school. Unfortunately, all is not as it first appears with her new boyfriend, BB (Buff Boy, aka Brian), or her classmate Jules. When BB decides that the answer to his problems is to bring a gun to school (a weapon that he threatened Sadie with), she is forced to make some important decisions. Dellasega's experience counseling young people on bullying issues is evident in this book, which also deals effectively with abusive teen relationships. Comments others add to the blog bring depth to the storytelling, and occasional black-and-white cartoons of the main characters provide interest. The lessons can get a bit didactic, but ultimately, the format saves the book from becoming too preachy.

Sadie¿s life takes a sudden turn when her parents decide to divorce, after having threatened to do so numerous times. She is moving, has to change schools, and her dad is moving to another state! Sadie starts blogging and has more issues to write about than she ever thought she would. Making new friends and fitting in at a new school isn¿t easy for Sadie -- her sister is a goth nightmare, the new boy in her life may be big trouble, and her mother starts dating. Blogging about it may be the only thing that gets Sadie through it all
