Kate's parents are divorced. Her father is a TV star, so she travels back and forth from California, where he lives, and New York, where her mom lives. She just wants a normal family. Her grandmother, Riley, decides to kidnap Kate from her father's house, assuming that each parent will blame the other and finally get together and talk like adults.

In the meantime, Kate realizes that the ragtag bunch of outcasts that live at Riley's (a retired naval cook, a former governess who suffered a mental breakdown, and so on) ARE a family. They care about and look after each other.

In short, an okay book that ends a little too neatly.
