CIP: Through a series of poems, Rachel expresses her feelings about her parents' divorce, living without her mother, and her changing attitude toward her father.

Written in a charming, poetic style, this book is easy to read even though it covers the difficult issues of abandonment and rebuilding intra-familial relationships.

SLJ says "this is a poignant character study of a dysfunctional family."
Kirkus says "a series of bland verses"
