What would you do if your dad found a new girlfriend—one who was completely, totally uncool? No one could be worse than Dad’s new girlfriend, whom he calls (ugh) “Sweet Potato.” Totally Uncool is a clever and witty story with offbeat illustrations that bring to life the challenges of adjusting to a single parent’s new companion.
