It's Not the End of the World

Karen Newman has decided she’ll never get married. Just look at her parents. All they do is fight. And now Karen’s dad has moved out of the house, and he and Mom are talking about divorce. Her older brother has locked himself away in his room, her little sister is in a state, and Karen can’t even bring herself to talk it over with her best friend. She’s never felt so alone. In spite of everything, Karen is sure she can set things right again – if only she can get her parents together in the same room. Will Karen come to accept that, though it might be the end of her family as she knows it, divorce doesn’t have to be the end of the world?
