*" 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.

A really enjoyable read for those in middle school and beyond. The authors did a great job depicting the personalities, language and behaviours of a tween/teen, who both have to deal with the transition of becoming a blended family. The audiobook is enjoyable to listen to, with wonderful narrators that help you get a good feel for each character.
