A 1998 National Book Award Finalist
Eleven-year-old Amanda Woods is discovering that the person other people think she is and the person she really is are not the same. So she changes her name from bland Amanda Woods to Amanda K. Woods--someone who is proud and strong and sure of herself. And that small change sets off a chain reaction, leaving Amanda--and the whole Woods family--entirely different. Ann Cameron's first novel for middle readers is every bit as insightful as her best-selling chapter books--and her fans will take Amanda to their hearts.
"Cameron displays a virtuoso gift for precision, telling observations, and creative but unforced imagery... her negotiation of the delicate nuances of the myriad relationships between people will open the eyes of many readers attempting to do the same." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
"Amanda K. Woods is a girl to like--she just doesn't know it yet. She's quirky, serious, impulsive, imaginative, perceptive, smart, and now, sharp...Amanda is the story, and she's as funny as she is wise." -- Kirkus Reviews, pointer review
