Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2^-4. Focused and funny, this is one of the best chapter books about Amber Brown. Danziger gets the details that concern today's kids as well as the issues that always make them vulnerable. Amber Brown is in fourth grade now; her parents are divorced, and her mother is dating Max. Amber Brown likes Max, but part of her wishes that her father would come back. Then Max proposes. How much will things change? The story here is taut, the conflict dramatized without preachiness. Readers will understand Amber Brown's panic ("If he's living in the house, there'll be no real privacy. I won't be able to walk around in my nightgown"), and they'll recognize the world they know: the joy of being grossed out by snot games with your best friend, even while you are facing what a family is and how it changes. As always, Tony Ross' occasional line drawings capture the scene with affectionate comedy. --Hazel Rochman"
