All your fault, kid

What about me?
Understanding your parents’ divorce
Spilke
1979

Hey Teens! Want the inside scoop on your dad’s infidelity?  Or how your mom feels that her life is being sucked away by kids or a husband that doesn’t understand? Maybe this whole divorce thing really is your fault.  This is your book.

Of course this is a good topic for a teen nonfiction collection.  However, a collection like this needs up-to-date material and how about a snappier cover?

  • In such an emotionally-charged and trying time in a child’s life, it’s comforting to know that they can have a gentle, soothing bible of calm such as this to ease their complex familial transition.

    I wish I’d had something like this. Dad gave me a carton of Pall Malls and a Whopper Jr.

  • Maybe it’s because I’m hung over, but I couldn’t make ANY sense out of that cover for like five minutes. “What understanding about your parents’s divorce me?” What the heck does that mean?!?

  • Well, I held out for a few days, but here goes: “Daddy drinks because you cry.”

    There said it.

  • This book is completely unnecessary. These days having divorced parents is the norm. It’s the kids with married parents who are the oddballs. You should try to find a book with a title like, “Why are my parents still married?”

  • The colour scheme of that cover makes it look like a book about the Third Reich.
