Since her mother's death Izzy has gotten through life with the help of her mom's rules--Rule # 19: Treat your elders with respect.  Someday you'll be old and annoying too.  Rule # 26: If duct tape won't fix it, chocolate probably will.  Now her dad is getting married again--to a woman Izzy barely knows. Izzy tries to adjust to her new family, help her brother Jason, and stay true to the "rules."  With the help of best friend Lisa, boyfriend Rafe, and Rolling Stones fanatic Mrs. Mac,  Izzy learns that while you can't choose your family in life, you can decide who to take along for the ride.
