Zoe Jones is an eleven-year-old sixth-grader attending W. G. Wesley Middle School. The first year of middle school is supposed to be the best year of all times. However, it's Zoe Jones's first week of school, and she can't find anything to be excited about due to her parents getting a divorce.
Zoe enters her first week of middle school not able to pay attention and feeling sad because she thinks that she's the reason her parents are getting a divorce. But when Zoe's teachers notice that something is wrong with Zoe, she is taken to the school nurse, who then takes her to the school counselor, to find out what is bothering Zoe. Once Zoe discloses that her parents are getting a divorce and she thinks that she is the cause of the divorce, the school counselor intervenes and calls a meeting with Zoe's mother.
Will Zoe Jones continue to blame herself for her parents getting a divorce? Or will counseling help her to see that she is not the cause of the divorce and help her to accept the fact that her parents are divorcing and move on so that she can enjoy her first year of middle school?
My Parents Divorced Me is a story of a child dealing with her parents going through a divorce by the incomparable Africa Hann.
In the book, the main point is, when married couples are going through a divorce, they don't realize that the children are going through a divorce as well. This book is to encourage the parents to maintain a healthy and positive relationship with each other for the sake of the child, and that they should not allow their differences to interfere with continuing to raise the child as parents if not a couple. Additionally, when parents are going through a divorce, they should seek family counseling to assist the child with coping with the traumatic experience of divorce.
