I liked this book because its true that it is hard to make brownies and it is hard to earn extra credit. The writer makes the story very life-like. The pictures in the book are sketches, but they are fun to look at. I did not like the character Max very much because sometimes I think he is mean to Amber. Once when Amber was talking to her dad she got mad, hung up, and went upstairs to look at her daddy-daughter book. I felt frustrated at this part and know I was really into the book because of how it is written!
I would recommend this book to anyone who can relate to these issues, like having to work hard in school, earning extra credit, and having to deal with divorced parents. I think that kids who have to go through these issues would really be able to understand what Amber Brown is going through! There are funny parts in the book where I laughed and then parts of the book that I felt frustrated, just like real life. It's a really good book!
