Special Order—Subject to Availability

Fourteen-year-old Bonnie has started a new advice blog with her best friend Jen, dedicated to surviving the horrors of junior high. In the middle of an enormous family, with "half sibs, step-sibs, half-step-step sibs, half sibs of your half sibs who are not your sibs at all but somehow wind up barfing on your bed anyway," she escapes to record her private thoughts in an 'offline' journal as well. But trouble looms for Bonnie in the form of Carter, her new stepbrother, with whom she has a strained relationship. And Jen has to deal with her mother Tina, a single mother battling an alcohol addiction, and caring for her baby sister Julia.
