Amber Brown."Danziger reaches out to a younger audience in this funny, touching slice of third-grade life, told in the voice of a feisty, lovable heroine."
Best friends...a team that really knows how to have fun, that knows how to help each other out.
When Amber has trouble with fractions, Justin is there with the answers.
When Justin writes a messy report, it's Amber to the rescue with neat cursive writing.
They've known each other practically forever...been building a giant chewing gum ball for years...always sit next to each other in class...play together every day after school.... He never says things like, "Amber Brown is not a crayon." She never says, "Justin Time."
Best Friends...a great team.
And then--disaster strikes.
Justin has to move.
And the fighting begins.
Will the best friends be able to work it out before it's too late?
"Danziger reaches out to a younger audience in this funny, touching slice of third-grade live, told in the voice of a feisty, lovable heroine." — School Library Journal, starred review
"Without a trace of condescension, Danziger gets the child's funny and vulnerable voice. The third-grader's friendship is beautifully drawn, especially the rituals about food, their shared enjoyment of the messy and the gross." — Booklist
