Published by Franklin Watts (How Do I Feel About series), 2001
Four children face their parents'separation/divorce in different ways. Jon lives with his mum and hasn't seen his dad for four years. Amee's mum moved out, and she lives with her dad but sees her mum at weekends. Jade and Mark's parents are in the process of getting divorced. Along with the photos of the real children talking about their feelings, there are comic-style illustrations conveying information on defining divorce, what happens, why it happens, the difficult feelings divorce brings about, and, finally, feeling okay about it all. Good detail at a simple level, with emphasis on feelings.
