"A funny, sympathetic look at a kid grappling with family change."
"It was funny and cool. Grace and her Dad built stuff and cooked together just like my dad and me."
~Sawyer, Age 12
Filled with reverse Parent Trap-like pranks, The Stepmom Shake-Up is a hilarious and heartfelt look at what it means to be a family.
After Grace's mom died, she and her dad grew extra close. They have special nicknames and are always busy with new projects- like building a puppy condo for their dog, Potus- and they love learning random facts about US presidents. Grace thinks her little family of two is perfect.
Then some committee members at church suggest it's time for Dad to start dating again. And Dad agrees! Grace knows that adding a new member to the team will end in disaster. No problem! She and her best friend have a plan. Operation: StepMom Shake-Up! But what if a little shake-up is exactly what Grace's family needs?
