*"This savvy, insightful take on the modern family makes for nearly nonstop laughs."-Kirkus Reviews, Starred Stewart, 13: Socially clueless genius. Ashley, 14: Popular with everyone but her teachers Ashley's and Stewart's worlds collide when Stewart and his dad move in with Ashley and her mom. The Brady Bunch it isn't. Stewart is trying to be 89.9 percent happy about it-he's always wanted a sister. But Ashley is 110 percent horrified. She already has to hide the real reason her dad moved out; "Spewart" could further threaten her position at the top of the social ladder. They're complete opposites, but they have one thing in common: they-like everyone else-are made of molecules. In this hilarious and deeply moving story, award-winning author Susin Nielsen has created two narrators who will steal your heart and make you laugh out loud.

"Narrators Jorjeana Marie and Jesse Bernstein flawlessly convey the alternating chapters in this outstanding YA novel. Thirteen-year-old Stewart and 14-year-old Ashley are thrown together when his dad and her mom blend their families. Two more opposite young people would be impossible to find! Bernstein's Stewart is articulate, caring, and grieving over the loss of his mother. Jorjeana Marie is a high-spirited Ashley, who struggles in school but is in the most popular social group. Both narrators deftly inhabit each character as Stewart helps Ashley accept her gay father and she helps him confront bullies at his new school. Listeners will become emotionally involved as Ashley and Stewart mature and grow to appreciate each other. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
