Synopsis

Ginny Morris and Dad's New Girlfriend by Mary Collins Gallagher

Ten-year-old Ginny Morris, whose parents are divorced, lives with each parent a week at a time. One day when she arrives at her dad's after a week with her mother, she discovers that the house is spotless, the yard is spruced up, and even her own room has been messed with. The reason: Dad has a friend named Ruth. In the aftermath of this discovery, Ginny grapples with a broad range of feelings: feelings of alienation, anger, and disgust toward her father, grief that her parents won't reconcile, lack of understanding and support from her best friend, a desire to live with her mother full-time, fear that she'll lose her relationship with her father, and antipathy toward Dad's friend. The story takes place over a week's time and comes to a reasonable resolution, with Ginny beginning to accept the directions her parents are taking in their personal lives.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
