Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Amelia McBride is going to her first dance (with a boy no less), but she's not the only one with a date. Yikes! Is Amelia's mom seeing someone too? Perhaps Reggie (a.k.a. Captain Amazing) can shed some light on the situation. But it's not all fun for the 10-year-old spitfire. A good friend reveals that her father will be sent to a dangerous country with his job in the military, and it gets Amelia thinking about her own family, her past, and what it means for the present. Also available in a hardcover edition (978-0-9712169-8-3).

Synopsis:

A good friend reveals that her father will be sent to a dangerous country with his job in the military, and it gets Amelia thinking about her own family, her past, and what it means for the present. Filled, as always, with delightful, full-color, classic cartooning and the hip wit and charm it's known for, the Amelia Rules! series is winner of 2007 Cybil Award for Best Graphic Novel, 12 & under. Also a multiple Eisner nominee, Best Title for a Younger Audience, and Harvey Nominee, Speical Award for Humor.
