Overview
Ginny Morris is in the fourth grade, and her parents have been divorced for two years. She goes back and forth between her mother's apartment and her father's house, switching each Sunday (?switch day?). As Ginny confronts challenges, she finds practical solutions for the things in her control and ways to feel better about and accept the things that are not. She also manages to assert her feelings and needs appropriately with her parents and to negotiate some compromises. For ages 8-12. Presents a realistic reflection of shared custody arrangements, showing Ginny coping with many practical and emotional challenges: leaving important items such as homework or soccer shoes at the other house; lack of continuity; different rules and expectations at each house; being used as a messenger between parents; missing the other parent; missing a pet at the other house; being out of the loop with friends and school events; emotional and logistical problems surrounding birthdays and holidays. Parents are portrayed with an ?average? amount of tension around typical childrearing and communication issues, and they model good parenting skills.
