In this Katie Jordan adventure
Katie and Claire compete to get their former fourth grade teacher to
marry their dads. Katie thinks Ms. Morgan would be the perfect mother
for HER. At the same time, she understands how much Claire needs a
mom. What a dilemma!
In a surprise move, Katie's brother Tyler asks their mom to give up her
career as a singer so she can come back home. Will she do it?
How can Katie possibly choose between her mom and Ms. Morgan? She loves both of them.
This satisfying novel is recommended for its realistic situations and
eminently human characters. A tender, believable middle-grade book.
Featuring two single fathers in very different situations, the author handles the realities of modern families with. . . candor and gentle humor. Emotionally resonant and fresh. -- School Library Journal
When Claire, Katie's perfect classmate and neighbor, plans a fancy Thanksgiving dinner, Katie begins to wonder if the relaxed day she, her father, and her messy little brother usually enjoy means they are not a "real" family.
