Joy is ten years old, living in Apex, Nunavut--a suburb of Iqaluit--and loving life. Her little sister Allashua may be annoying, but all in all Joy loves living at the top of the world in Apex.

But when Joy begins to notice her parents fighting a lot more than usual, and her mom staying with her sisters in Iqaluit more than she is home, Joy's perfect life soon becomes a lot more complicated.

As Joy navigates her parents' separation and its affect on her family, she learns some valuable lessons about how to cope when life gets tough. Told in the wry, funny voice of a smart and savvy ten-year-old girl, this book will appeal to young readers everywhere.
