Do stepbrothers and stepsisters have to hate each other? Not is this book.
Meet Iz--a girl with three wacko stepbrothers, one cool dad, and an amazingly hard-to hassle step-mother. She's part of a wild and lively household, with praying matises everywhere--not to mention snakes, crickets, crabs, a crazy parrot, road rage trips, unmade beds, a rubber slab of vomit, and one zany plot to get a dog.
How can Iz leave her new and nutty family to visit her boring mom, even for a day, without missing out--big time?
This hilarous romp with the Becker family also looks at love, loyalty, and guilt. Betty Hicks has written another winning novel that delivers humor, pet poop, and a refreshing new take on family ties.
