Growing up in a nice family that does fun things together, Kacie is sad and confused when confronted with the announcement of her parents' separation and divorce. She discovers, with the help of her mother, that she is not the only child who is faced with this situation and learns that talking about her feelings and keeping a positive attitude can make her feel better. The lighthearted tone of this narrative makes an otherwise harsh subject more approachable and can help guide a child through the process of change from an age-appropriate point of view. Painting a picture of a loving union and an amicable ending, this tale demonstrates that a sad situation can still yield a happy ending.
