All Shook Up


by Shelley Pearsall

Summary: Since his parents divorced years ago, Josh has become used to being a "shared kid" and dividing his time between his mom in Boston and his dad in Chicago. When his grandmother falls and needs his mother's help, Josh must move to Chicago, change schools, and spend more than the usual time with his dad. He expects some challenges like trying to fit in at a new school, but he does not expect to discover that his dad has become an Elvis impersonator!

Thoughts: Josh's narrative is believable and touching as he describes the struggles of being a child of divorce and having a parent who is so embarrassing!
