FOR THE KIDS
Parents getting divorced is hard for any kid, but this nerdy fourteen-year-old boy’s experience is more than hard, it’s downright weird. Kyle’s mom and dad used to be married AND his stepmom and step-dad used to be married, and now his parents are trading spouses. That’s right, his life is like an episode of Wife Swap that never ends. To make matters worse, his crush at school is becoming his step-sister.
This hilariously dark comedy follows Kyle as he struggles to keep his fucked-up-Brady-Bunch family in line while dealing with the horrors of high school. Good luck, Kyle. You’re gonna need it!

After a day full of embarrassing talks, including Janney-Anne accusing Kyle of wanting to be a woman, Kake admits to Kyle that she was the one looking at the porn and that she’s gay. The only other person she’s told this to is Amber. Kyle promises to keep her secret until she’s ready to tell the parents. It all ends with Amber telling Kyle she’s disappointed that he doesn’t watch porn, “It gave you a sorely needed edge.”
Bruisin’ for a Cruisin’ – Tim and Mary had won tickets to a cruise before their divorce and neither one is willing to give up their seat. After a day or two of fighting about it they finally leave the decision up to the kids, who are not pleased to be put under this kind of pressure.

Kyle and Amber Kiss – Amber gets cast in the school play as Juliet and Kyle is determined to get the role of Romeo so that he can finally kiss Amber without it being weird. And he does… and boy is it weird. Amber admits to Kyle that she didn’t hate the kiss but is mad that his sole reason to get cast was to kiss her. Amber decides that this life is too fucked up and files to be emancipated and Kyle can’t help but feel like he tore his family apart.
