When sixteen-year-old Maddie and her twelve-year-old little sister, Molly, heard the news that their dad was getting divorced, they were devastated. With their mom living in New York and their dad rarely around, the two girls had been closer to their dad than ever before.
So, with their dad single again, Maddie and Molly decided to take matters into their own hands. They concocted an outrageous plan to find their dad a new love––one that would make him happier than ever before!
Chapter 1: The Big Idea
Maddie and Molly’s dad, Brad, had been happily married to their mom, Jackie, for over a decade before they split. The divorce was not a surprise to Maddie and Molly, as their parents had been distant and lonely for years. The girls had resigned themselves to the fact that a divorce was inevitable.
Now, it was time for the sisters to come up with a way to cheer him up. After much deliberation, Maddie and Molly decided to embark on a mission to find their dad a new love. That’s when they came up with the idea.
Maddie and Molly would team up and embark on an epic California adventure to find their dad a new love.
Chapter 2: Getting Ready
As soon as Maddie and Molly got into the car, they knew they had made the right decision. With their dad’s blessing and guidance, they had packed the car full of everything they would need for the journey.
The plan was to drive up the Southern California coast, starting in their hometown of San Diego, and then head inland to explore the rest of the state. They had taken the time to map out their route, and even made a list of potential places to meet potential dates for their dad.
Maddie and Molly had planned for all contingencies. They stocked up on snacks, sunscreen, and beach towels. They also packed some of their dad’s favorite music, books, and movies for the car ride.
Chapter 3: The Journey Begins
Maddie and Molly were so excited to get started on their California adventure. As soon as they hit the road, they were filled with anticipation. They had been looking forward to this trip for months, and now it was finally here.
Their first stop was the beach, and Maddie and Molly had both been looking forward to the waves. They planned to spend the day surfing and soaking up the sun.
Their dad had taught them both how to surf when they were younger, and they had been eagerly waiting to show off their skills. Maddie and Molly grabbed their boards and hit the waves right away.
Chapter 4: A New Friend
One morning, while out surfing, Maddie and Molly met a girl named Alex.
Alex was a professional high-diver from Arizona who had been visiting the California coast for a few weeks. She was the same age as Maddie and Molly, and the two girls quickly became friends.
Alex was full of stories about her diving exploits and had an infectious enthusiasm for life. She was a kindred spirit to Maddie and Molly, and the girls quickly became inseparable.
Unbeknownst to Maddie and Molly, Alex would soon become an essential part of their mission to find their dad a new love.
Chapter 5: The Discovery
Maddie and Molly took every opportunity they could to learn more about their new friend, Alex. During one of their conversations, they discovered that Alex was actually the daughter of their dad’s college sweetheart.
At first, Maddie and Molly were shocked, but they soon realized that this was the perfect opportunity to get their dad and Alex’s mom back together. The girls began to hatch a plan.
They decided to invite their dad and Alex’s mom on a double date hosted by Maddie and Molly. The sisters got to work, making plans for the perfect evening and inviting their dad’s old flame.
Chapter 6: The Reunion
Maddie and Molly were nervous as the night of the date arrived. Thankfully, their dad and Alex’s mom both accepted the invitation without hesitation.
The evening was a success and the four of them had a wonderful time. Over the course of the night, the two adults reconnected like no time had passed at all.
Maddie and Molly were relieved to see their plan had paid off. They couldn’t have been happier that their dad had found love again.
Maddie and Molly had set out on an epic adventure to find their dad a new love, and they had succeeded. Not only had they found a great friend in Alex, but they had also brought joy back into their dad’s life.
Their dad and Alex’s mom are still happily together, and Maddie and Molly still consider Alex a member of the family. The four of them continue to take road trips and explore the California coast together, just as Maddie and Molly had always hoped.
