Amelia deals with switching classes and a mean teacher as she starts middle school, and copes with the embarrassment of having her sister along on an overnight science field trip. The hand-lettered notebooks feature sixth-grade-style cartoon vignettes of people and events in Amelia's life, along with entertaining sidebars of things that strike her fancy, all in a pitch-perfect sixth-grade voice.

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. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY
