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.
