"I, Amber Brown" Tackles Real-Life Issues

In I, Amber Brown, written by Paula Danziger, Amber convinces her dad to let her get her ears pierced, after her mom said no. The resulting conflict motivates her parents to work out the details of their relatively new shared-custody arrangement. Readers can identify with Amber's struggle to become her own person while pleasing others and avoiding consequences. As you read this book with your child, talk about Amber's feelings, as well as which choices work in her favor, and which ones don't.
