Amber Brown visits her dad every summer because her mom spends summer with Max her boyfriend. This means that she gets to be with her friend Molly, one of her sister's Polly and her friend Dilan. The next day her dad came to pick her up. When she heard the door bell ring she said "It's dad, it's dad." When her mom opened the door they hugged.
I like this book because it reminds me of my brother and ex sister-in-law. I love this book and I would recommend this book to people whose parents got divorced. It also reminds me of my cousin who had a boyfriend and now they broke up. I also think the illustrations were beautiful and they matched the story well. For example, the picture of Amber Brown's mom in California. The background of the picture really looked like California. I felt sad for Amber Brown because there were many changes in her family.
Have you ever had to move from your family? Will Amber Brown have to move from her dad? Read the book to see if Amber's mom gets married to Max.
