The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher by Dana Alison Levy is a RICBA nominee for 2017. This is a story of a family of all boys, four kids and two dads. They are a lively, loving family and I enjoyed reading about their school year. The boys all have various problems they are dealing with; new school, tough assignment, imaginary friends. I loved the family traditions the family Fletcher have, like making a hockey rink in the back yard when it's cold enough and their big annual Halloween party. Although things often fall apart a bit, like the ice rink collapses, or the party gets rained out, they find a way together to make everything better. It is a touching story about what it is like to be part of a family.
