Praise For The Meaning of Life... and Other Stuff…
"A standout graphic-novel series continues on its well-thought-out path...Gownley does not shy away from tough topics, presenting them in a way that is both approachable and understandable to kids. Reminiscent of an illustrated Alice McKinley, Amelia is growing up with her readership and taking them along on her often bumpy voyage. With all of the tribulations Amelia must deal with, she paints an accurate portrait of what preteens must deal with and how fast they sometimes have to grow up. Well done; here’s to the next installment."

“The seventh book in the Amelia Rules series is as well written and beautifully illustrated as readers have come to expect…the books remain a kid-friendly mix of humor and realism.”
