Brenda does homework with her and makes cool food. Amber’s mom and dad are divorced and she lives with her mom. Amber’s dad is moving back from France, and she has a book called “Countdown to Dad” so she knows how many days until he comes back. Amber’s life is pretty complicated.

Should she go to Walla Walla, Washington with her mom and Max for Thanksgiving, or should she go to New York City with her dad? Amber doesn’t know what to do, and it is making her feel blue. She spends a lot of time thinking about what she is going to do. Decisions are hard to make.
7 The Plot: The Middle, Part 2 Kelly Green is the new girl in school. At first, Amber Brown doesn’t like Kelly Green because she has a colorful name, just like Amber. The teacher asks Amber to show Kelly around the school. While they are looking around the school, Kelly throws up. Amber tells everyone about it. Then everyone teases Kelly, calling her Kelly Greenbarf. Amber isn’t sure if they are going to be friends.

Also, Amber and Brandi go to Kelly Green’s house where they paint their toes with nail polish. They also paint the dog’s toes. That is how the book ends.

The next holiday, which is Christmas, she is going to spend with Mom and Max. Amber also decides to be friends with Kelly Green. That is how Amber Brown resolves her issues.
10 Should other 4th grade students read this book? I think other fourth grade girls should read this book because it shows how Amber Brown resolves her issues, and other fourth graders could learn from this. It also talks about how to be a good friend. It is a funny book, so lots of girls would like this book.
