Eight year-old Alex has a fight with her best friend, Zach, who says he can no longer be her friend. Why? Because her parents 'aren't married'. Operation Marriage looks at the humorous and heart-warming actions of Alex and her younger brother, Nicky, to convince their parents to get married. Based on a true story and beautifully illustrated, this is a splendid and touching story. Although this is a children's book, the content makes a serious point about the struggle for equality, with the final uplifting message being one of hope.
