Books about the Tates

Caroline and J.P. Tate are so much like real kids in real families: a bickering sister-and-brother pair, with a long-suffering single mom. They live in New York City, but in one book they spend a summer with their dad in Iowa. In truth, the Tates could exist anywhere.

Your Move, J.P.!

A sequel to "The One Hundredth Thing about Caroline" and "Switcharound", the book presents a good case for the danger of mixing lies and love and is just as lively and entertaining as the earlier two.

The One Hundredth Thing About Caroline

Switcharound

Forced to spend a summer with their father and his "new" family, Caroline, age eleven, and J.P., age thirteen, are given unpleasant responsibilities for which they are determined to get revenge.
