Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

It's summertime, and Julie and Lydia are going on a road trip! After all the ups and downs of their first year in junior high, they're looking forward to seeing the sights and getting some new perspective on their quest for popularity. Papa Dad and Daddy will provide the transportation, and they'll provide the entertainment.
At first Julie and Lydia use their Powers of Observation to catalog the traditions and oddities of each new location they visit, but soon their attention turns to parents and family and negotiating sensitive family dynamics. By the time the duo hits familiar streets again, they may have to accept some uncomfortable truths, but their journey is infused with the humor, heart, and truthfulness that Amy Ignatow is known for.

Junior high girls Julie and Lydia are excited to go on a road trip with Papa Dad and Daddy, and although they begin the trip by observing people and traditions in each new place they visit, their attention begins to shift to sensitive family issues.

Horn Book Review

In this fourth book, Lydia and Julie take a cross-country road trip with Julie's two dads. Told through the girls' hand-written, illustrated diary entries, the story is lively and funny (and includes geographical details). Serious issues--Lydia's feelings about her parents' divorce and her father's remarriage; the fact that Julie's grandparents dont accept their son's partner or his homosexuality--are also included.
