Based loosely on the author's experience as an only child of divorced parents whose mother found her a couple of “stepsisters,” this fiction graphic novel is a realistic look at coming of age in a place you feel you have no business being in. Jen must not only deal with some funky chickens and their weird habits, she must deal with Walter (her mothers’ boyfriend), her mother’s deer-eaten garden, the Farmers Market and two new “sisters” (Walter’s girls) every weekend. Typical issues happen (Jen has issues with math, she and Andy butt heads, Walter insists on calling her Jenny, even her mom seems to be against her). The insecurities we all tend to face at least once comes to light in this heavily illustrated, brightly colored, perfectly detailed book for ages 10 to 14. One could even go as young as 8 or 9 due to the fact there is “drama” but not "teen drama." ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
