Hearing your daughter say, “I’m getting married!” should be one of the happiest times of a mother’s life — but for Colleen Phelan, it’s the beginning of six months of uncertainty. She, her husband Don, and their daughter Amy have been a trio for so long that Colleen isn’t sure she can rediscover herself, or her own marriage, once Amy is gone. When her husband announces that at 19 Amy is far too young to get married, and that he intends to ask TV’s favorite fix-it doctor for advice, Colleen has to find someone else to turn to, or risk losing everything and everyone she loves.

At 36, Mike Hanks still doesn’t think he’s ready to be a dad. He’s the Fun Uncle – the one who’ll jump into a pile of leaves with you, or go for ice cream, or help pull a prank on your parents. He’s not able to be the one in charge, the one with the answers to all the tough questions. But ready or not, she’s here: Annabelle Elizabeth, his Annie – and he discovers to his amazement that she’s willing to accept him “as is.” That this little person trusts him, and adores him, and will forgive all of his mistakes, because he may be a jerk, but he’s HER jerk. Her dad. Her best friend.
