520    "A wise and inspiring guide to creating a happy and 
       healthy blended family by Mashonda Tifrere with 
       contributions from her co-parents--Swizz Beatz and his 
       wife, Grammy-Award winning singer and songwriter Alicia 
       Keys. In January 2010, founder of ArtLeadHer Mashonda 
       Tifrere and music producer Swizz Beatz finalized their 
       divorce. When Swizz married award-winning singer/
       songwriter Alicia Keys, a new dynamic was born--three 
       adults who loved and were deeply committed to raising 
       Mashonda and Swizz's four-year old son Kasseem. In Blend, 
       Tifrere draws on the insights they gained from their 
       journey as well as advice from family therapists, 
       parenting experts, and other blending families, to provide
       an invaluable resource for blended families. Statistics 
       show that one in three Americans is now a step-parent, 
       stepchild, step-sibling or other member of a blended 
       family. The number of first time marriages or romantic 
       relationships that end in divorce or breakups and the high
       percentage of remarriages and new relationships that 
       involve children demand a unique, life-affirming approach 
       to processing the end of one relationship and the rebirth 
       of a new familial dynamic with the well-being of children 
       at its center. In this book, Tifrere shares intimate 
       details on how she and her co-parents used communication, 
       patience and love to create an environment where they were
       able to work as a team and all the children involved could
       thrive. Blend will inspire a generation of families"--
