The characters of the two "moms" in this felt flat to me, and the plot felt contrived. Too bad--it's a great idea for a book: a kid growing up with queer parents struggles when they split up. ( )
  anderlawlor | Apr 9, 2013 |
Compelling story of the dissolution of a marriage from the POV of Nick, a 14-year-old boy. His moms' relationship has come apart at the seams, and he wants to live with his non-biological mom. Dwells a little too much and too long on Nick's depression for comfort, and it's hard to believe (she says self-servingly) that a mother could ever be so clueless about her kid. Overall a solid book.

Nick has two Moms, his biological Mom and her wife Jo. He grows up thinking that this is normal until he comes to school. Although he gets taunted by other children he learns to handle being in a special situation. Unfortunately his two Mom's split up after a long relationship and Nick experiences how it is to loose a family member.
You see the whole story through Nick's eyes which makes it a very honest and touching story.
A very well written book which I can recommend to everyone! ( )

I really enjoyed the story line for this book. I thought it was really intrestingly written, and I even liked how each chapter is seperated based on who the main person (Nick) is with. If he is with his mom or Jo, or etc. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316739065, Hardcover)

Nick has a three-legged dog named Lucky, some pet fish, and two moms who think he's the greatest kid ever. And he happens to think he has the greatest Moms ever, but everything changes when his birth mom and her wife, Jo, start to have marital problems. Suddenly, Nick is in the middle, and instead of having two Moms to turn to for advice, he has no one.

Nick's emotional struggle to redefine his relationships with his parents will remind readers that a family's love can survive even the most difficult times.
