Holly, her mom, her new stepfather and his four cats have moved into a real house with a backyard. Holly makes some new friends – including Xavier, who has two dads, and Annie, who has a new baby in her family. The kids are real and interesting, and Xavier’s parents are just a natural part of the interesting mix of people in Holly’s new neighborhood.
