"Growing up isn't easy, and when you don't have your mom and dad around, it can seem even harder sometimes. But some kids grow up with help from their grandparents together with other adults and kids that make up their grandfamilies in their own chosen family villages. Brittany and her brother Bryant were fortunate to be raised by their grandparents, Nonna and Poppie (Loretta and Jacques Avent). Their childhood often felt "different" (and not only because their Nonna worked in the White House)! They felt different because their family was different than a lot of their friends' families. But different doesn't mean bad, and when you can piece together your own grandfamily, it can be pretty incredible, too!"--Page  of cover
