12-year-old Annabel thought the Christmas holiday would be fantastic. She was planning to spend time at home with her best girlfriend in New York City, doing old-fashioned things like figure skating at Rockefeller Center, visiting Bloomingdale's after Christmas sales and screaming with the TRL Crownd on MTV in Times Square.
However, as her best girlfriend leaves, Annabel's mother decided that it is high season for Annabel to go to Australia to see her dad and his new one. Anabella is not happy about travelling around the globe to hit "the steps" - twelve year old stepdad, five year old stepdad and little half-sister - but she will not miss this opportunity to take her dad back.

Concerning the 2003 hard cover issue. Concerning the 2003 hard cover issue. In this first persons story, the 12-year-old Annabel, a Manhattan woman, undergoes drastic changes in her own and others' families. The divorce of her folks, Jack and Angelina, came after a rough and tumble wedding. After moving to Australia to stay with his second spouse, Jack left Annabel in New York with Angelina.
Anabella is envious of her mixed Aussie familiy, especially 12-year-old Lucy. Annabel, who has the opportunity to come to Australia, imagines how she can bring Jack back to the US, is resolved to reject everything about the odd new mix of families, and she and Lucy set off on a transformational, all outing. It has a very attractive and entertaining design with a pedigree of countless steps (stepbrothers and stepsisters) with Annabel in the centre.
