From the Publisher:

Grandmothers don't get married!

How can Jenny's Nana marry Charlie Streeter? Even worse, how can Jenny be Nana's flower girl? Mr. Streeter wants her to call him "Uncle Charlie," but to Jenny he'll always be the Gray Man because everything about him is gray. Charlie is taking Nana away from her -- to New York! Jenny's desperate. But when she wishes on her rabbit's foot charm for a hurricane to keep Nana home, Jenny gets more than she bargained for! How can she save Nana and Charlie before its too later?

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-- Jenny is hurt and angry when she learns that her grandmother is going to marry Charlie Streeter and move to New York, and she resolves to stop the wedding by wishing on her lucky rabbit's foot. When Hurricane Wanda strikes on the wedding day, and her grandmother and new husband are in an automobile accident, Jenny is horrified at what she believes to be the result of her wishes. A heart-to-heart talk with her grandmother convinces Jenny that a rabbit's foot can't grant wishes and that Charlie will never take Jenny's place. The situation of grandparents remarrying is an interesting one that is affecting more and more children; however, this story is flawed. Jenny and her grandmother are the only characters of the many in the book that have any substance. The rest remain shadowy forms in the background. Murrow has severely limited the audience of the book, as Jenny is eight years old and the reading level is at least third grade; most readers reject books about younger children. It's a shame that the story doesn't live up to its potential. --Nancy P. Reeder, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, Columbia, SC
