Meet the Fletchers. Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark!

There’s Sam, age twelve, who is mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who is psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who is thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone is the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa. The Family Fletcher is fun to know.

WARNING: This book contains cat barf, turtle pee, and some really annoying homework assignments.

Perfect for fans of The Penderwicks and James Patterson’s Middle School series, this seriously funny, anything-but-typical modern family adventure features two dads, four adopted boys, and a variety of pets.

Quotes & Awards

  • “With its semi-episodic structure, laugh-out-loud humor, and mix of zaniness and love, Levy’s debut offers something truly significant: a middle-grade family story featuring gay parents and interracial families that is never about either issue.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • Kirkus starred review, June 1, 2014:
    "The Fletcher family rules!"
  • School Library Journl starred review, June 14, 2014:
    Fans of Beverly Cleary’s Quimbys, Judy Blume’s Hatchers, and, more recently, Jeanne Birdsall’s Penderwicks will fervently hope that more Fletcher misadventures are yet to come.
  • “This book is notable for its matter-of-fact depiction of an atypical family, the same-sex couple and their ethnically diverse children—two white, one African-American, one adopted from India. The boys are very different from one another but closely tied with warm family bonds. Their banter is realistic, and the disorder of their everyday lives, convincing. The Fletcher family rules!”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “The warmth of this family and the numerous issues that readers will easily identify with make this a welcome choice, especially for boys.”

    Booklist

  • “Dana Alison Levy has gloriously reimagined the classic family story into a thoroughly modern mold, and it works perfectly!”
