Fourteen-year-old Nick has a lot to deal with in his life, but right now the worst thing that is happening is that his moms, Erin and Jo, are splitting up. Nick looks back on growing up in his different family -- getting teased, being protected, fun times and hard times, and doesn't understand how it all went wrong. Mom and Jo promised to be there for him (together) forever, and now they're breaking that promise. Erin doesn't even want him to see Jo. Nick learns to speak up for what he wants and needs amidst the pain of a parental breakup, and anyone who has ever dealt with divorce, whether it be by two moms, two dads, or a dad and a mom, will relate to Nick.
