Everything suddenly changes when Erin and Jo split up. Erin has custody of Nick and forbids him from seeing Jo. Suddenly he plunged in the middle of their feud. He is torn between one mom’s wishes and his need to see Jo. And as if that weren’t enough, his mom soon begins dating again.
Though he may not have a traditional upbringing, I could easily identify with Nick. I felt that the purpose of this book wasn’t to read about a kid with two moms, but instead to read about a young man coping as his family falls apart. No matter what your background is, readers can relate to Nick’s loss and loneliness (don’t worry, I didn’t find this book to be overly depressing, just filled with emotion).
I will soon be reading more of Peters’ books, she really knows how to create realistic, unique characters!
