Twelve-year-old BFF’s Ginnie West and Tillie Taylor, want to be sisters. Ginnie’s widowed dad plus Tillie’s divorced mom could equal a lifetime of round-the-clock girl talk and slumber parties. Too bad Dad vowed to never marry again.
Ginnie and Tillie come up with the perfect scheme to change his mind: ‘Operation Secret Sisters’ (aka OSS). After all, if they can’t get Dad to move on, Tillie can’t move in.
When Monique isn’t writing, you can find her playing taxi driver to one or more of her 12 children, plotting her next novel, scrapbooking, or being the “Mamarazzi” at any number of child-oriented events.
Even though she realizes there will never be enough hours in any given day, Monique tries very hard to enjoy the journey that is her life. She shares it with a terrific husband, her dozen children and 3 in-law kids, eleven granddarlings, 5 cats, and many real and imaginary friends.
She is the author of five published books (and several unpublished ones) and is in two anthologies. You can find more about Monique and her works at: www.moniquebucheger.blogspot.
Uncle Jake leaned closer and lowered his voice. “Ginnie, if you don’t tell me, I’m going to have to presume the worst and let him deal with you.”
Fury fizzed through her body. “You’re not my dad! You don’t get to boss me.”
“Seriously?” He pointed his spoon at her. “You really want to go there?”
Ginnie considered her options.
Navigating the choppy waters of her dad’s anger was one thing, but sailing into the not-so-chartered waters of Uncle Jake’s ire was something else. She searched his face. His eyes offered sympathy. “I’m doing this under protest.”
