Can Karen Keep Her Parents Together?
on May 14, 2002
In this book, Karen Newman�s parents are getting divorced. She has a little sister, Amy, and an older brother, Jeff. Karen does not want this to happen. Karen does not want this to happen. Her father moves out, even though they are not divorced. Karen is very mad at them. She tries really hard to get them back together.
Jeff runs away, and her parents get very mad at each other, and she gets madder at them. Finally she realizes she can not stop them from getting divorced.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes books that are funny, serious and a teeny bit sad all at the same time. It was funny when Karen tried to get sick so her parents would take care of her and not get divorced, and serious because it is just a regular girl�s life, and sad when her parents get divorced.
I liked Debbie, Karen�s best friend, because she was very funny, and she was kind to Karen while her parents were getting divorced. She did this by paying more attention to her than usual, when she would be flirting with Jeff.
