Still a Family is based on a true story of how two young sisters, Grace and Mia, face the challenge of accepting the news that their parents are divorcing. When they first learn of the news that Mommy is moving to South Carolina and Daddy is staying in Washington, D.C., it’s very saddening. However, the girls quickly learn that what they thought was going to be sad news, has a happy ending. They soon realize that even though the family will be living miles apart, they are Still a Family.

I gave still a family five stars because I was raised by a single parent due to divorce, I feel this book touched on topics that are real-life situations that need to be addressed in order to cope and heal, it was easy to understand so that it could be used to open up a dialogue between parents and children. Patiently waiting for grace and Mia goes to counseling.
