Dan from I Hate Camping and I Hate Company is back, with more insightful and hilarious things to say about his newest pet peeve. This time it's weddings, and it's Dan's father who's getting married. Who wouldn't hate it? Dan has never met his stepmom-to-be or her children--a four-year-old fireball who can't wait to have a big brother and a twelve-year-old girl who seems out to get him. Dan wants to make a good impression, but from the start of the wedding weekend, his best efforts backfire.

Readers will agonize with Dan over his humiliating goofs and laugh with him at the uproarious ways he begins to break down the chilly barriers between old family and new. As with I Hate Camping and I Hate Company, this is light, funny stuff with real poignancy and heart, which will speak to the conflicting feelings that inevitably accompany second marriages.

Illustrated by Lynne Cravath
