Cassie is devastated when her lawyer-father leaves his family to embark on a new future in Kansas with a ``twenty-six-year-old lawyerette.'' While Cassie's disorganized mother tries her hand at a job for the first time and Cassie's sister Corinne obsesses over her looks and a boy at school, Cassie attempts to eliminate any and all males from her life. But when Uncle Harry comes to stay with the family, Cassie is drawn to him. With her uncle's help, Cassie discovers a path that allows her to move on from her anger and disappointment. Sensitive storytelling makes this story stand out from the many problem novels dealing with divorce. A credible plot allows each of the main characters to cope with the divorce in her own way. A compelling treatment of a familiar predicament. Ages 10-13. (Oct.)
