American families are changing. New attitudes toward adoption, same-sex marriage, interracial relations, and more have influenced the makeup of families all across the nation. The Changing Families series helps young readers understand the experience of being part of a nontraditional family. Chapters examine the changes that are taking place, how young people within these families view themselves, and how they are affected by the views of outsiders. Each book also presents stories of well-known people who have grown up in nontraditional families.
