Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A bland tale with an overeager message kicks off this new series from a celebrity husband-and-wife duo. In the middle of her fourth-grade year, Amy Hodges eagerly transitions from homeschooling to regular school. Smarmy kids of various races mock her flowered dress, tape a "Stupid new girl" sign to her back and insult her for being interracial. A band of nicer classmates (also multiracial) takes her in. They nickname her "Amy Hodgepodge," which supposedly shows warm acceptance of her Japanese, Korean, black and white ancestry but actually focuses a glaring narrative spotlight on an identity that should be normalized. For a talent show, the kids breezily write song lyrics and choreograph a dance; Amy conquers stage fright to sing the lead role. Jeong's sketches feature large, manga-styled eyes. Amy's closing realization that her new friends are "all different colors [but] all one of a kind" typifies the syrupy quality of this well-meaning but cliched effort. (Fiction. 6-8)

    Humor After Humiliation.

    *Enjoyed the illustrations. *Engaging storyline and characters are sure to hold the readers' attention (ages eight to eleven years old). * The premise of the novel is sure to "hit home" for some readers when they realize why the protagonist is called Amy HodgePodge. *Nice novel for teaching the lesson of accepting others and to avoid cruel words directed at other people. If you enjoy this novel for young readers, you may enjoy the Keena Ford series of novels as well as Liberty Porter First Daughter series of novels.

    Teaches tolerance and other values. Pretty good book!!

    Amy Hodges is dubbed with the moniker 'Amy Hodgepodge' because she is biracial. After being home schooled all her life, Amy's trying to adjust and find her place in a real school. In this book, by Kim Wayans, Amy finds acceptance with a cute group of fellow misfits. Amy and her new group of friends band together to enter a talent show. I like the way Ms. Wayans approached the topic of being multi-racial and found it to be a positive story about friendship. My grand kids love the series now and have read most of the books. They are easy to read and have cute illustrations.

    My 6yr old and 4yr old loved it!

    We saw this book one day and were immediately drawn to it because Amy looks so much like my daughter. Although the reading level was too advanced for my 6yr old, I read it to both of my girls and they loved it and begged for more. I'm so glad to see there are more books in the series. I can't wait for the day they can read them all by themselves! It was nice to read about a girl who is multicultural. Very refreshing. A great moral lesson to boot!

    I Loved this book!

    This is one of the best books I ever read. It's probably even better than my favorite series, Mercy Watson. Amy would be a nice pretty girl and I don't like the people who make fun of her in the book. I like how the author decribes her feelings. It's super good and I would love to have a friend like Amy.

    Asia Fell In Love With This Book

    My daughter is 8 and brought this book last week at her school bookfair. She fell in love with the charters. I went on B&N to see if Kim Wayans and Kevin Knotts had other books. And I'm glad to say that they do. I will buy the other two that are out, and will wait until November so I can get the newest one. I have never seen my daughter so excited about a book, and she reads every night. Great Book, I can't wait for more in the series. Yolonda

    I just finished reading the first book in the Amy Hodgepodge series with my 7 year old niece, it was so sweet and entertaining. My niece doesn't read very much but this book totally enticed her, she sat on her bed for the whole day and read the whole book. I came online to order the second book in the series. I had just finished reading the book with her for a 2nd time and it inspired be to tell other parents what an amazing book it is. Ive never posted a review before but it made me happy to see my niece be so into a book. Hope this inspires other parents

    I loved reading this book, and I didn't think I would. I was amazed and surprised at how the authors were able to bring back those sometimes painful feelings of being insecure as a child, and make it okay through the hero Amy. A definite keeper!A fan of this wholesome series.
