Divorce is never easy, and for teens, it can feel like they’re living two different lives, or just a single one that’s a gigantic, disorganized mess. Living in one place with school, work, friends, hobbies and family is difficult enough, but throw periodic relocation into the mix, and it could well be enough to make you want to tear your hair out. In Split in Two, author Buscemi offers funny, useful and practical advice for teens who are going through this very set of problems and would like to come out with their sanity (and their families’ sanity) intact. Peppered with little line-drawing cartoons and quotes from real teens and young adults who have been there and done that, this book is a quick, entertaining read, but also one with lots of great information. Chapters include advice on money, packing, room decorating, scheduling and more. This slim paperback is a great choice both for teens and as a resource for parents who are looking for some talking points about practical issues their teen may be having in the wake of divorce.
