Polly can't believe that her dad actually likes Veronica Kreep. But that doesn't compare to how she feels now that the two are getting married! And if Polly thought the Kreeps were bizarre, that was only because she hadn't met the extended Kreep family yet! One thing's for sure, marrying a Kreep is anything but boring! Polly Winkler just wants to be a normal kid in a normal family. When you're ten, that's hard enough. But it's even harder when your dad decides to marry the mother of the weirdest family in town!
Polly seems to be the only one in her family who sees how strange the Kreeps really are. Her older sister is too busy cheerleading to notice anything and her younger brother is consumed with preparing for the county spelling bee championship.
With the Kreeps around, Polly is always at risk of dying of embarrassment. But at least she knows that life will never be boring!
