I liked the realness of this novel. From the subject matter, to the honesty of the characters, to the characters themselves, I could see this novel being played out right before in my eyes as I read it. Violet’s father has had an affair and moves out, leaving his two daughters and his wife behind. Suddenly, Violent and her sister Rosie have another family in California as their father has remarried and has moved on with his life. With a new wife and twin daughters, the girls travel from Canada to California to be with their father but its twelve- year old Violet who is furious at her father for his affair. Life at home without their father is not the same and Violet takes out her anger while in California visiting her father, their trip is shortened. The feelings and thoughts are sincere and valid as Violet tries to handle the adjustments to her new life. Everything she feels and thinks, she has a right to own them. I really enjoyed Violets relationship with her sister and her girlfriend, they each meant something special to her and they showed us a part of Violet that was important to the novel. I thought the reference to the Magic Eight Ball that the author included in the novel, was fun. I feel that this novel is one a great novel for children and one that many children could relate to. It might even be used to open up some meaningful conversations dealing with the issues that the author addressed inside.

I thought it would be a lighthearted read but it is dark and boring at many times

Made me smile from page one. A fast read full of comedy and pathos.

Twelve-year-old Violet is mad at the world, or at least at her mom for making poor choices (in Violet's mind) when it comes to boyfriends, at her dad for leaving the famiy to marry a blond bimbo, and at George Clooney for not writing back to her. Violet's mom met George years ago and Violet thinks a letter asking George for a date, on behalf of her mom, is a way to get rid of the most recent bad potential stepdad--Dudley Wiener. There are many laugh-out-loud moments but Violet did rub me the wrong way a few times. Does a tween really spend her life obsessing about the perfect stepfather? Would a tween really feed her half-sisters the disgusting item that Violet presented to the twins? Some children of divorce will identify with the anger and confusion of the protagonist. Teen girls will revel in the naughtiness.
