Kids are told, "it's for the best"--and one day, it may be. But right now, divorce is the worst. With honesty and humor, Anastasia Higginbotham beautifully conveys the challenge of staying whole when your entire world, and the people in it, split apart. Exceptional in its child-centered portrayal, Divorce Is the Worst is an invaluable tool for families, therapeutic professionals, and divorce mediators struggling to address this common and complex experience.

The Ordinary Terrible Things Series shows children who navigate trouble with their senses on alert and their souls intact. In these stories of common childhood crises, help may come from family, counselors, teachers, or dreams—but crucially, it's the children themselves who find their way to cope and grow.

Review:

"The illustrations deliver a substantial emotional impact.. But it’s Higginbotham’s directness and refusal to talk down to her audience that will make this book such an asset to families negotiating divorce."
Publishers Weekly

"While divorce books are plentiful, [Divorce Is the Worst] stands above the rest."
School Library Journal

"How can you not love a children's author who sees so clearly from her reader's point of view?”
Julie Bowen, actress, Modern Family

"This book provides, through honest language and evocative imagery, a uniquely realistic view of how children experience divorce. While neither softening nor whitewashing this difficult topic, Higginbotham offers an ultimately comforting message to parents and children experiencing separation and divorce."
Lisa Spiegel, LMHC, director of Soho Parenting, NYC

"This is a cool book full of medicine for the heartsick child."
Ani DiFranco, musician

"I wish so much that this book had existed during my divorce, to help my daughter through. I also wish it had existed during my parents' divorce, to help me through."
Krista Vernoff, Screenwriter, Grey's Anatomy, Shameless
