Best-selling and critically acclaimed author, Paula Danziger, is back with the latest title in the best-selling, amazingly popular series about the irresistible Amber Brown!

Amber Brown's parents just aren't acting the way she thinks parents should. Sometimes Amber's dad goes out on dates when he is supposed to be spending time with her. And her Mom went to Disneyland with Aunt Pam while Amber was with her dad (not fair!). Then Mom and Max decide to get married even sooner and move to a new house--maybe even a new town!
Some kids have parents who stay together. Some kids don't have to think about moving away from their school and all their friends. Some kids seem to have no problems--& that makes Amber Brown green with envy.

Amber Brown Sees Red
“The narrative gets exactly right the fourth-grader's mix of feelings, her focus on the trivial, the gross, and the essential.” --Booklist
