Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. In the latest volume of the Amelia's Notebook series, Amelia records her experiences and feelings when she receives a letter from her father (who divorced her mother and left when she was a baby) and visits him in Chicago. Amelia's adjustment to her father and stepmother is realistically portrayed, with the good intentions, false starts, and awkwardness inherent in the situation. Toward the end of the visit, Amelia is able to ask her father the questions she's been asking herself for years and hear answers that begin to heal the hurt that her father's absence and silence caused. Jaunty ink-and-watercolor illustrations, purportedly Amelia's work, decorate every page of this highly readable book. The voice is consistently Amelia's, but the points of view of other characters, from her sister to her stepmother, come through as well. A fine addition to a popular series. --Carolyn Phelan"
