Overview

Amelia embarks on her most epic adventure yet in this final addition to the Amelia Rules! graphic novel series.

From surviving her parents’ divorce, to withstanding the terror of Joe McCarthy Elementary, to handling devastating crushes (not-so-)gracefully, Amelia Louise McBride has weathered her share of storms. But with her new spot on the cheerleading squad, Aunt Tanner’s hordes of adoring fans, and Reggie’s successful mission to mold young superheroes into productive—and cool—members of society, Amelia’s sailing seems remarkably smooth.
Then Tanner disappears, humiliated by an ex-boyfriend’s tell-all book, sending Amelia into full panic mode. And when she boards a bus on an epic journey to find Tanner—with frenemy Rhonda in tow, and a little help from a certain boy she never thought she’d see again—it quickly becomes clear that if Amelia has learned anything in her eleven years, it’s that life is never through with surprises.
In his heartwarmingly hilarious eighth volume of the acclaimed Amelia Rules! series, Jimmy Gownley takes us on Amelia’s most thrilling adventure yet—and back again.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–7—Eleven-year-old Amelia is back. In the midst of cheerleading practice and making viral videos with her superhero club, she learns that her Aunt Tanner has gone missing. Our heroine takes action, hatching a plan to find Tanner and bring her back. Rhonda comes along for the ride, further developing their friendship. The two manage to track down Amelia's aunt and make her realize that she is loved. There's a good dose of snark that may go over the heads of readers, and some silliness, but there's also a lot of heart in these pages. Amelia's world is portrayed with a refreshing honesty, full of very real emotions and modern situations. The loose, full-color illustrations have an inviting comic-strip feel. Characters are introduced in the front of the book, allowing readers to pick right up with the story. Life isn't simple, and everyone makes mistakes. In Amelia, readers will find an imperfect character to whom they can relate.—Travis Jonker, Wayland Union Schools, MI
From the Publisher
"Readers who have followed Amelia’s adventures in the previous seven volumes will happily tag along on this one, as Gownley’s colorful, cartoony art subtly shows how Amelia and her friends have grown—they’re now 11 years old. A fine finish for this kid-favorite series."

    This book was so AWSESOME! I've already read it 15 times and I may read it for a 16th time too just for the heck of it! Jimmy Gownley's work is so amazing and genuine.The stories behind them and the details are what I really loved and admired about the whole series! I love all the books the same and are all equally outstanding ,but this one in particular is so heartwarming and hilarious that I pracitcally started crying because the story was over. Gownley inspired me to want to write and draw books of my own.i just really wish he would create more AMELIA RULES! books. I'M REALLY GONNA MISS THEM!
