"If my name was Amanda I'd live in Atlanta, and I'd wave hello to a shark..."

A little girl with a big imagination dreams of the adventures she might have, if she was somebody else instead of herself - from befriending sharks in Atlanta to playing jazz in New Orleans to riding her bike in Zanesville.

The possibilities are endless, but her favorite person to be is still herself, at home with her family.

With playful, rhyming text and colorful, engaging illustrations, this whirlwind introduction to the richness and variety of life in the USA is a story that children will delight in reading over and over, and using as a springboard for their own imaginative adventures.
