Combining families is hard, even harder when it involves moving to a new place. This sweet story explores all the emotions that come with suddenly having a new step-parent and step siblings. I love how the characters learn to love and adjust to having new family members, to becoming a new but different family. Plus, lots of silly events are mixed into serious conversations and feelings, and there's a farmer's market!
