From Library Journal Author and attorney Sember focused on divorce and family law in her law practice and has used her experience with child custody cases to create a "flip book," with one-half for custodial parents and the other for noncustodial parents. Each book is complete with appendixes and indexes, and the chapter content is equivalent. The goal of the book is to offer practical advice to parents who must deal with the situation after a court has determined custody and to make the most of the time they have with their children. Her advice is solid and straightforward, with suggestions for improved communication between parents, appropriate behavior with children, and caution against returning repeatedly to the courts. Sember tells parents to get over it, get on with their life, put their children first, and do the best with the arrangements they make children need both parents. Recommended for public libraries and for parents struggling with custody and visitation issues. Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll. Lib., Wye Mills, MD
