Publisher Comments:

Wow! Mom's boyfriend Max has invited Amber and her mom to Walla Walla, Washington for Thanksgiving. And Amber's dad is coming home from Paris to live nearby. Life couldn't be better. Until Amber's dad calls. He's expecting Amber to spend Thanksgiving with him in New York City. And the grownups are leaving it up to Amber to decide what to do. Suddenly, Amber feels as if she is in the middle of a bad dream...which only gets worse when she goes to school and meets the new girl — Kelly Green. No way...no one in the class has ever had a two-color name like Amber Brown. Hannah Burton smirks and says, "Let the color wars begin!" Home. School. Nothing is going right. What to do? Amber Brown is feeling blue.

About the Author

Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in New York, Paula Danziger knew since second grade that she wanted to be a writer. Beginning her career as a teacher, Danziger taught at the junior high, high school, college levels. She received her Masters Degree in reading and during that time she wrote her first bestselling novel, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. She returned to teaching, but the success of her book encouraged her to become a full-time writer. It was non-stop for Danziger since then. Among her titles are: the enormously popular Amber Brown books as well as Remember Me To Harold Square, The Divorce Express, and Can You Sue Your Parents For Malpractice?

Danziger received numerous honors, including: Parent's Choice Awards, International Reading Association - Children's Book Council Awards, a IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award and many nominations for state reading and library association awards.

Known as a flamboyantly funny and deeply honest writer and speaker, Paula Danziger knew how to relate to young readers at their level. She was vital, funny, and compassionate. She knew how kids felt, what made them laugh, what they wore, collected, read, and played with. From collecting novelty toys that would make any teacher cringe, to wearing jangly earrings, funky glasses and shoes covered with beads and sequins, Paula Danziger had a direct line into kids' hearts and funnybones. She will be missed always.


In Paula's memory, The Amber Brown Fund has been established to bring authors and illustrators to schools and libraries which otherwise could not afford them. Donations may be sent to The Amber Brown Fund/ SCBWI Museum of Children's Books, 8271 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048.
