Now that Ginger Fox and her mother are living with the Badgers, life just isn't the same.
Ginger's new badger brothers like to argue. Her new badger baby sister takes up all of Mrs. Fox's time. And Mr. Badger has a lot of rules about keeping the house tidy. That's not how they used to do things back at the Fox home.
Maybe Ginger should live with her father instead. But Mr. Fox travels all the time. And Ginger really likes the new clubhouse she and her brothers built. If only they could keep those mean cats from taking over the clubhouse...
Maybe belonging to a big family has some benefits after all!

"In this sequel to The Meeting (Lerner, 2010), in which Mr. Badger and Mrs. Fox met and blended their families, Ginger Fox is having some trouble adjusting to her new life, which includes two badger stepbrothers. In the end she realizes that having a bigger family can only bring more rewards and is happy with her situation. Luciani uses animal characters to bring to life the feelings and frustrations that can develop when children are faced with family changes. The pros and cons that Ginger experiences suggest a realistic view of modern families instead of an idealistic 'Happily ever after.' The watercolor illustrations help set the mood and provide a great deal of depth to each panel. Each strip depicts Ginger's feelings and makes the text come alive. A good choice for the youngest graphic-novel fans." --School Library Journal
