Life has always been normal for Evyn Linney (well, as normal as it could be for a girl who doesn't have a mother). She has a regular life in Maine: a best friend, an OK school, a comfy house, etc. But then her dad breaks the news to Evyn and her brother Mackey. He's getting married to a woman that he hardly knows-and they're moving to Boston to live with her and her kids. That's right. Six new quarreling siblings and stepmother that looks like Betty Boop. Could life for Evyn get ANY worse? Oh, yes. She has to adjust to a new school, and the most popular girl in the eighth grade hates her. And, on top of that, the only friend she has (who lives in Maine), isn't being so friendly anymore. Evyn's hating all the changes around her: her dork brother becoming Mr. Theatre Man, her dad pretending to be someone who he's not, her best friend being exactly opposite of that...Why can't things be the way they used to be? Natasha Friend, bestselling author of Perfect and Lush, speaks truthfully and tells an excellent story that'll make you laugh and cry-about a girl who must bounce along and cope with the overwhelming amount of changes in her life.
