Amber Brown and Justin Daniels are best friends. They sit next to each other in school, help each other with fractions and spelling, and always stick up for one another. But when Justin finds out that he is moving away, everything begins to change.
"Danziger reaches out to a younger audience in this funny, touching slice of third-grade live, told in the voice of a feisty, lovable heroine." —School Library Journal, starred review

“Danziger [has] a pitch-perfect view of a child’s emotions.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This heroine’s perky, first-person narrative allows readers to make her acquaintance immediately—and effortlessly.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Without a trace of condescension, Danziger gets the child's funny and vulnerable voice. The third-grader's friendship is beautifully drawn, especially the rituals about food, their shared enjoyment of the messy and the gross." —Booklist
