Nothing has gone rights since Emily Smiley's widowed father remarried. the first thing her new stepmother wanted to do was change everything. And if there's one thing Emily hates more than anything, it's change. Except maybe her three new stepbrothers. Ugh! They're noisy, ill mannered, and so...so boyish.
But the trouble really starts when Emily becomes the target of fourth-grade bully Missy Atkins. The Mean Queen.
Why can't things just be like they used to be?
