Written by Mary Blitzer Field and Hennie Shore, illustrated by Bruce Van Patter. This book is a self-esteem book about dealing with shared custody. This "upside down" book tells the story of a young girl and how she handles the challenges of living in two places. On every other page, she tells us about a problem she had, and when the reader flips the book over, the next page tells how she solved the problem. In addition to holding the interest of children, the action of turning the book upside down will help them realize that they can take charge of the problems that occur in their lives and find practical solutions that will help them feel "grounded" again. Told with humor and sensitivity, this child's feelings and concerns echo those of most children of divorce. Book includes "Forms to Help You Get Organized." 72 pages, softcover.
