This book was awesome. I thought it was cool how the book had actual kids tell you their experiences and thoughts. This book wasn't very long but it sure gave me a lot of information. I actually used the stuff in the book in my life. I recommend this book to any kid who's parents are going through divorce.a

Thank you so much to ZEST BOOKS for sending me a copy of this. We are going through a divorce this year, so the timing couldn't have been more perfect.

This is a quick little book - about 30 minutes from cover to cover - full of "tips", "what to expects", and "how to deals".

I think its a great tool for my kids (and tool for ME so I can help them through, too!)

A practical guide for kids living in two homes, with potentially two sets of rules, two sets of responsibilities, and a lot of packing. Booktalked by reading Jeff's view on p. 24.

Honestly I thought that it was a cartoon, but it is really about tips for divorced parent kids.
