Beloved Amber Brown returns in a new book!

Amber Brown is excited about her mom and Max’s upcoming wedding. Not only does Amber get to be the Best Child but all her best friends are invited, including Justin, whose family will be making a special trip back to town just for the big event! But when every conversation about the wedding causes a fight about money, they talk about a having a tiny wedding without any family or friends. On top of that she’s on the hunt for the perfect dress and writing her Best Child speech.

Paula Danziger called Bruce Coville and Elizabeth Levy her best friend and her other best friend, and this close connection enabled them to lovingly capture Amber Brown's voice, sense of humor, big-heartedness, and her fondness for puns.

Read an Excerpt

Amber Brown isn't looking for just any dress. It has to be THE dress.

“How about this one?” Aunt Pam says. “It’s not pink.”

“No, it’s outer-space green,” I say.

The dress is iridescent, which means shiny. And yes, I like shiny, but this one looks like an alien ate something that didn’t agree with it.

I give Aunt Pam my “I can’t believe you expect me to wear this dress” face. It’s a face I’ve been making all day. Aunt Pam is getting exasperated. Mom is getting exasperated. The sales woman is getting exasperated……and we’ve been to six stores before we even got to her.

I, Amber Brown, am exasperated too. I am also disgruntled, peeved, and put out. I have nothing to wear. I don’t mean that I’m naked. But now that we are having the wedding, I must, must, MUST have THE dress!

It’s not going to be alien green.
