Amber Brown is Not A Crayon
Friday, November 16
Grades 1 - 4
Amber Brown is having what may be the worst year of her life. She and Justin Daniels were the perfect team. They laughed at each other's jokes, sat next to each other in class, and remained best friends when Justin's dad had to move away. But now things are different. Justin's house has been sold, and he is going to Alabama; that's too far from New Jersey to think about.
Told in a uniquely funny and forthright style, this story of a feisty young girl who refuses to let her problems get the better of her. It will touch and entertain audiences everywhere. You'll laugh and cry with Amber as she learns some valuable lessons about the virtues of patience and the meaning of friendship.
