Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From acclaimed singer-songwriter Dar Williams, the story of a girl trying to figure out her place in the world . . . and in her neighborhood.

When Amalee's grandmother dies, she inherits a very strange object: a huge champagne bottle filled with over a thousand dollars' worth of change. Amalee is told to spend the money on something important, so she decides to make a movie about endangered species. Soon there's as much going on behind the scenes as there is in front of the camera, as Amalee deals with a new friend, a very cute older boy, her wacky family friends, and a host of other challenges. She also discovers something she never expected to find — a link with her mother, who disappeared and died when she was very little.

Synopsis:

After receiving an inheritance from her grandmother and instructed to do something special with the money, young Amalee decides to make a film about endangered animals in order to help their cause, yet during the process she learns a lot about herself, falls in love with a member of the crew, and discovers something special about her mother who passed away when she was just a little girl.
