Summary
Amber Brown's going through a growth spurt . . . and her body's not the only thing that's changing. Her mom and Max are engaged. Her dad is moving back from Paris. And now her school's overrun by skunks, and she feels like she's being held captive in a hot, crowded school bus that's going nowhere. But growth spurts and skunks are not her only concerns. Why can't her parents agree on anything . . . and most important, what will happen when Dad moves back?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-4. In the latest chapter book about Amber Brown, she is going through a growth spurt and is enjoying fourth grade, but her divorced parents are behaving like children in their telephone battles about their joint custody of her. She hates feeling split between them. She also hates, hates, hates her new haircut. She likes her mother's fiance, but she worries about her loyalty to her dad, who is coming back from Europe to live near her. The first-person, present-tense narrative gets exactly right the fourth-grader's mix of feelings, her focus on the trivial, the gross, and the essential. Readers will welcome the combination of farce and tenderness, the honesty about anger and hurt and love. --Hazel Rochman"
