About this title

Synopsis:

Amanda Woods is discovering that there are some things in life that you just can't change, like who your parents are or how your older sister treats you, but she is determined to change what she can. To begin with, she's not going to be just plain Amanda Woods (the girl her mother seems to think is just average). She's going to be Amanda K. Woods - someone who is proud and strong and sure of herself, someone who can have a French pen pal and a best friend of her own choosing, someone who finds four-leaf clovers and can get perfect scores on her math homework. There is more to Amanda than anyone else can see, things about her that Amanda herself doesn't even know yet, but she's finding out. In her first novel for older children, Ann Cameron presents a heroine who is philosophical and honest as only a twelve-year-old can be.

From the Back Cover:

There are some things in your life you can't change -- and others you can.

Amanda Woods is discovering that the person other people think she is and the person she really is are not the same. She doesn't want to be like her demanding mother or her perfect older sister, and, even though she feels close to her father, she doesn't want to be like him, either. But she has to start somewhere. 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 change sets off a chain reaction, leaving Amanda -- and the whole Woods family -- entirely different.
