Whether she likes it or not, ten-year-old Piper Lee DeLuna is about to get a new family. Four years after the plane Piper's daddy was piloting disappeared, her mama is remarrying. The way Piper sees it, Mama's being plain disloyal.
Besides, who'd want to get stuck with a prison guard for a stepdad and that weenie, Ginger, for a stepsister? But when Piper Lee hatches a foolproof plan to get the wedding called off, it quickly spirals out of control. And by the time Piper realizes what she's done--and just how much she really cares about her new family--it might be too late.
From the author of the award winning middle grade, A Million Ways Home, comes this hilarious and heartwarming tale of new families and new beginnings.

From the Author:

Many people have asked if A Smidgen of Sky and A Sliver of Sun are based on my own experience, and I usually say yes and no. Yes because I have been a step mom since 1992 when I stepped into a ready made family and learned first hand the unique and challenging dynamics of blended families. And no, in that Piper Lee and my other characters are purely fictional. But I hope the many young readers in Piper Lee's situation will be able to relate to her conflicting emotions, and realize that sometimes, if you can push aside your fears and be open to new possibilities, wonderful things can happen.

From the Back Cover:

Mama sent me to bed at ten o'clock, but it was still too hot to sleep. I lay there on top of my covers, fretting over how Mama would skin me alive when she found out about my clawed dress. But then a shaft of moonlight shone across my bed. I looked out my window. I could see only a smidgen of sky, but it was enough to make me think of Daddy. He was my favorite thing to think about before I went to sleep at night. I closed my eyes real tight and heard his deep, chuckling laugh. But Ben laughed like that, too. Was I hearing Daddy's laugh or Ben's?

I flipped over, trying to get comfortable. In just two months, if I couldn't find a way to change her mind, Mama would become Mrs. Ben Hutchings and I"d still be Piper Lee DeLuna. Our names wouldn't match anymore. Even our address would change when we moved to Ben's house. If Daddy came back, how would he ever find us?
