  Elly and John Patterson, along with their children Michael, Elizabeth, and April, make up one of the most beloved families in America. The clan from For Better or For Worse is not only recognized, their lives are studied, identified with, and, most of all, treasured for the amusing reflections they provide.

  Perhaps it''s seeing part of ourselves in this familial fiveâ€"something that makes them so endearing. Maybe it''s the good old-fashioned values they display. No matter what her secret, creator Lynn Johnston excels, once again, with this collection, Love Just Screws Everything Up, that gives us a chance to grow even closer to the Pattersons and their devoted dog, Edgar.

  This collection of heartwarming and humorous vignettes traces the Pattersons as they toil and traipse through their daily existenceâ€"lives much like our own, amplified by Johnson''s insightful take on the extraordinarily funny things that happen to ordinary people. For example, we watch as Elly, seemingly stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, uses her cell-phone to call the officeâ€"while actually waiting to give her drive-up donut order. Or there''s John scolding his girls during a fishing trip for wasting the live bait, only to have a gull grab his next cast in mid-air.

  No matter what their situation, no matter what their challenges, the Pattersons always come through with smilesâ€"at least on their readers'' faces. This creative collection, Love Just Screws Everything Up, is sure to captivate all fans of cartooning''s first family.

From Our Editors

It's another year in the Patterson home, and the kids are growing up. Elizabeth is starting high school, but both she and Michael are starting in on an even larger journey of discovery - both are in the process of finding out that as wonderful as it is, love sometimes seems to be just more trouble than it's worth. And with romance in the air, Gordon and Tracy finally tie the knot! Love Just Screws Everything Up is the delightful 17th volume in Lynn Johnston's beloved comic strip... and an instalment that no Patterson family member will want to miss!
