It's in the news every day: divorce is tough on kids. MacGregor knows how tough, and she has prepared a down-to-earth guide that genuinely helps. Included are discussions of many topics troubling kids when their parents divorce: reasons parents get divorced: ways the divorce will change kids' lives: kids' feelings about divorce: things kids can do to help them feel better: who to talk to: what's likely to happen next. This is not just a book for kids about divorce, though. It's a book about life after divorce, too. The kids in MacGregor's book are dealing with visitation and custody and straddling two households and making it all work. Maybe it isn't easy, but it is possible and it is

Cynthia MacGregor is the author of 50 books for parents and kids, many with a focus on helping kids through difficult situations, including her newest book Jigsaw Puzzle Family, along with The Divorce Helpbook for Kids: The Divorce Helpbook for Teens: Why Do People Die?: Why Do We Have to Move?: and Why Do We Need Another Baby? A divorced mother herself, with many divorced friends, Cynthia brings real-life experience to the subjects of her books.
