Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6--Amelia describes her agonizing first days in middle school in her latest hand-written journal. Colorful sketches of lockers, teachers, students, and the mazelike building are just some of the visual details that readers will scrutinize as Amelia encounters intimidating eighth graders and faces the question of where to sit in the cafeteria. Worst of all, her English teacher, Mr. Lambaste, hates her. Big sister Cleo confesses that she had played a mean trick on Mr. Lambaste and now Amelia's attempt at being nice to him lands her in detention. As her other classes encourage her to look at art and science differently, she also learns to look at life and people differently. When she finally writes Mr. Lambaste a story about getting to know people and seeing them for who they are inside, Amelia realizes she has found a way to see through the personas of the cool kids and has taught her teacher something as well. Readers who have just started middle school will relate to and sympathize with Amelia; younger students will feel as if they are getting the inside scoop on what to expect when they get there.-Kristine M.

personally, i think this book was pathetic. while it may have been trying to prove the point that stereotyping is wrong and should not be used in cases such as amelia's, the material in the book flatly contradicts the lesson moss attempts to illustrate. i really enjoyed most of the other books in amelia's series, but this one was simply rather lame. mr. lambaste, amelia's least favorite teacher, places amelia in the same catergory as her sister cleo -- a troublemaker. while attempting to prove mr. lambaste wrong and show him that she is the polar opposite of her older sister, amelia stereotypes her peers as well. i would strongly advise against indulging in this piece of inconclusive work and seriously considering another selection.
