"Goot for You!" is a true story of survival. Julie told Kerry not to marry David because, a few years earlier, she herself had married a rich man with three children. Blinded by love, Kerry didn't listen and followed her friend into the abyss. Not having the power to stop the enabling, dysfunction, and bad parenting, Kerry and Julie helped each other to cope. Their survival tools included appletinis, therapy, humor, wine, prescription drugs, shopping and the competition for "the crown," awarded to the one with the most screwed-up stepkid at any given time. Jail, detox, re-tox, weapons and welfare. There's a lot of mileage on that crown. This book serves as an excellent warning to anyone considering marrying a person with "baggage." When it gets too heavy, drop it and run.
