" When Dad wanted me to come to his BIG family reunion, I couldn't say no, but for me it wasn't a party -- it was being thrown in with a bunch of complete strangers! It's hard enough dealing with my sister, Cleo, but getting to know a whole new -- and plenty strange -- family -- OMG!"

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
For most of her life Amelia's family consisted of her mother; her older sister, Cleo; Aunt Lucy and her adopted daughter, Raisa; and Uncle Frank. Now she is about to confront her father's huge family, whom she has just recently gotten to know. She and her sister are going to Texas for a weekend to attend a family reunion with their father, stepmother, and half-brother, George. The story unfolds in a realistic fashion with uncertainty, anger, humor, and anxiety. As with the other books about Amelia, girls will relate to Amelia's thoughts and actions. The handwritten notebook-like format has bright and strong but simple illustrations, adding to the book's overall appeal. It looks just like what a typical middle school student would recount in her own journal. This book is part of the "Amelia" series. 2006, Simon & Schuster, Ages 10 to 13.

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-When Amelia's father invites her and her sister Cleo to a family reunion, Amelia doesn't know what to expect. Her parents have been divorced for years and she has never met her dad's extended family. Will they be nice? Will they like her? Will she fit in? Amelia reveals the not-so-easy answers to these questions in her familiar notebook-style journal. The colorful illustrations and chatty writing are appealing, and readers will quickly relate to the protagonist's sometimes-funny tale of life in a less-than-perfect family.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Library, UT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
