It is very relatable for youth. If your parents are divorced and especially if they're remarried, this book is relatable. Reading it, you are put in Annabell's position. I saw it in the public library and it caught my eye. AHS/MS

This story explains how children who have divorced parents feel. Annabel has never met her stepbrothers and sisters, but she already hates them. Her dad sent pictures to her of Lucy and Angus, his wives children. She thought of all the reasons why to hate them. She picked on Lucy’s clothes, she hated the way they called Jack, ‘dad’, she thought of all the reasons of why to hate her stepfamily. She hated them because, they lived in a cottage, they had no idea what fashion was, and more. She even hated them for living in Australia! She thought it was weird how it was summer in December and how the Australians drive on the left side. She picks on every little detail but slowly she realizes that there is a good side in everyone.

Annabel goes from New York to Sydney to visit her father and the stepfamily she's never met. Totally resistant to both Australia and her dad's new life, over her holiday she finds that maybe things aren't as bad as they seem.
I didn't like this that much but I think that was mainly because I was annoyed at the many Australianisms I felt were inaccurate.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689874146, Paperback)

Twelve-year-old Annabel thought Christmas break was going to be amazing. She'd planned to stay home in New York City with her best friend and do traditional things like go ice-skating in Rockefeller Center, hit the after-Christmas sale at Bloomingdale's, and scream with the TRL crowd at MTV in Times Square. But when her best friend bails, Annabel's mom decides it's high time Annabel visit her father and his new family in Australia.

Annabel is not pleased about traveling around the world to meet "the steps" -- twelve-year-old fashion-disaster stepsister, five-year-old stepbrother, and baby half sister -- but she's not going to waste this chance to steal her father back.
