Drama with family members can cause tweens and teens to do things that get them in big trouble and leave them feeling confused and frustrated. Based on Book 3 of the award-winning Middle School Confidential™ series, What’s Up With My Family?, this app goes home with Jack, Jen, Chris, Abby, Mateo, and Michelle from apps 1 and 2 as they deal with the fact no family and no family member is “perfect.” They run into a wide range of family matters from sibling rivalry to divorce to dealing with strong emotions in heated situations. 

Written by parenting expert and teen adviser Annie Fox, illustrated by Matt Kindt, published by Free Spirit Publishing, and developed by Electric Eggplant, this graphic novel app enables readers to zoom right into the story world. The app puts decision-making power into the hands of readers, with 8 interactive quizzes that test which responses might improve a given family situation and which are likely to make things worse. With beautiful full-color illustrations and richly layered audio made up of movie-like sound effects and music, My Family will engage and inspire 8- to 14-year-olds (even reluctant readers!). As a bonus for parents and teachers, this app puts thought-provoking storytelling and solutions into the hands of kids who deal with tricky family issues every day. It will challenge them to think about their families in new ways and reveal that while life at home may not always be wonderful, appreciating family members and working together really can help to make things better.
