INFO: Danzinger, Paula. Amber Brown Goes Fourth. N. 1995.
DESC: A hilarious and riveting addition to the Amber Brown series. Paula Danzinger has created a believable, high-spirited and immensely unforgettable character in Amber Brown, who lost her father to divorce, her mother to an annoying new boyfriend, and her best friend to a sudden move to Alabama in the series’ seminal Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon. Here, we see Amber struggling to get ready to enter fourth grade – in the midst of all of these hectic life-changes! How will Amber navigate the fourth grade without her best friend, Justin Daniels? And how will she navigate the trials of back-to-school with her beloved father far away in France? Amber, true-blue, handles all of this with characteristic honesty, spunk, and humor – and, although your kiddos will cheer her on as she “goes fourth,” neither of you will want this one to end!
