Dream On, Amber

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Helen Crawford-White. Though she barely remembers him, eleven-year-old Amber Miyamoto (half-Italian, half-Japanese) misses her dad, who abandoned the family when she was six. With a mix of humor and heartache, Amber's lively narrative in this British import describes her attempts--one successful and one less so--to make up for his absence. Amusing doodles decorate the pages of the art-loving middle schooler's story.
