C's Review) I really liked Katie's story, her mom sounds very cool but I find it sad that she isn't living with her and her dad and brother. Her two friends are very different. Claire seems awful bossy. I really liked the dog that smiled too. I think this book was very good and I want to read the other stories about Katie.

(Mom's Thoughts) What a cute story, with some really great themes, We looked at different types of families, one who lost a parent, one who had a parent leave to promote a career. I think this was a great way to help readers see that there are so many different types of families. One of the themes throughout the book was of the girls attempting to find a new mother. I thought that was really open, honest and would be a great read for a girl in that situation!
