|a6th grader Karen Newman has decided she'll never get married. Just look at her parents. All they do is fight. And now Karen's dad has moved out of the house and he and her mom are talking about divorce. Her older brother has locked himself away in his room, her little sister is a mess, and she can't bring herself to talk about any of it with her best friend. She's never felt so alone. Yet in spite of everything Karen is sure she can set things right again if only she can get her parents together in the same room. Or will her fantasy backfire?
