There's Dad, his new wife, a new baby, and not one but Four annoying younger stepsisters, one of whom, nine-year-old Pheobe, has taken to following him about everywhere and seriously bugging him. Any minute now he's going to explodel As if this wasn't enough, now there's another female on his case - Izzy. She acts like she fancies him, but he thinks she's just leading him on, to win a bet with her friends. Women - who can live with them? Maybe he should go and live with Mum, with her new partner and baby, in their ordinary, normal quiet home - at least there'd be some peace. But then Phoebe disappears, and Ed feels awful. After a day's agonising search, he is the one who finds her. And in that moment, he realises that he loves his family and wants to be with them, however chaotic they may be!
