This is another great poetic book by Nikki Grimes, which features Xaxier and his newly wedded Mami and his new stepdad and stepbrother Chris. Xaxier is not happy about this. He resents his new brother and feels Chris is the ¿perfect¿ child. Throughout the book you can see the strong jealous emotions Xaxier is feeling, yet when Xaxier has a showdown with Chris, he finds why Chris tries to be so perfect. Finally the brothers began to understand each other hurts and start feeling and playing like real brothers. They become best of friends and happy to be brothers when they find out that their parents having a new baby and it¿s a girl and they are more glad than ever to welcome a new member into the family.
