I think it was really good, a really good story. I would like it better if it was longer. There was a little bit of Judaism in it.

This book made me think more about friendship.

a really heart warming story that gets you thinking about the true meaning of friendship.
the only reason that i did not give it five stars is because it had close to nothing about Judaism. however if i were just reading it from the library and was not thinking about the Judaism part i would totally give it five stars but since it was a pj our way book i think it should have had more about Judaism. however it was a great book and i would totally recommend reading it.

Great book!

Submitted 1/9/2019 by Saharagirl

This book was extremely disappointing. I don’t have really high standards when it comes to books but this was BAD. I thought it would focus more on funnier topics but NO! It has to focus on Carly going away. And I liked Carly! It should be listed under realistic fiction, not comedy. I would turn around and read something else. ☹️

So good!

It was realistic. They show problems among many middle school students, then later on they discussed the solutions. The story is the cause and effect of a middle school student. You should definitely read this book! 😁👍

It was ok but it was very short and not so good but it is great for 5,6,7 years and she still shows you not to always count on the good things to happen all the time

alright but needs more jewish culture
Submitted 11/7/2018 by rosereader

This book was just OK

This book made me think more about friendship.

this book was definitely a sweet book. but the only mention of jewish culture is twice in the whole book. the jewish mention is about a bat-mitzvah that Amelia then decides not even to do! I definitely liked the other Amelia books better but it is still better than not reading a Amelia story at all! one thing I give credit To is the books have been around since the late 20th century. long before diary of a wimpy kid and dork diaries there was Amelia journals. I would suggest reading it but even if you don't like it so much give the other Amelia books a try because they are much better.

I'd love to read the other Amelia books, I have a feeling that they might be better. Some parts of this book were strange, like Amelia's relationship with her sister and even the basic plot line. I definitely felt this book lacked Jewish content. Surprised it made it on PJ Our Way. But it was a funny, charming book, Amelia is a pretty realistic character and the quirky, hand-done text adds a lot. Having read none of the other Amelia books I felt like I was missing something, but the basic idea was understood. A completely fine, enjoyable story, go for it, but only if nothing else looks better!

Meh

This book made me think more about friendship.

I liked some of the other Amelia books better than this one. First of all even though it’s a journal 📓 I feel like it is not completely accurate to what being in middle schoool feels like. This same thing might not be true for others but It definitely is for me. Another reason I don’t love it is because she talks about her own problems so much that eventually you just get a little bored. Amelia says the same things over and over again that any time she says I have a problem you know exactly what she is about to say. On the other hand I feel like it does depict some accurate things like that some sisters don’t always agree and that it is probably scary to be going to high school.

People, this book was so good but i personally thought that it was a bit too short. It ended right before i could start to wonder what would happen. On the other hand, if the author had written any more it wouldn't have been a middle school GRADUATION diary.

This book made me think more about friendship.

This book was very funny, and I realized two important things while reading it. First of all, good friends are gifts that you have to work hard to keep. Second of all, Judaism is complicated, and it must be hard to learn it all, or even think you've learned it all over the course of a few weeks. People should respect that.

An awesome book

Submitted 9/2/2018 by TheFool

This is a really good book! It is really funny, and enjoyable. Most of all, i can really relate to it. I moved from England to America 4 years ago, and I switched schools last year. All that is in there is true. It is not like other diary books in the sense that a kid is moping about not being popular for 100 pages. Nor is it all boring and bland. It is really realistic and also can be inspiring if you are stuck in similar situations like I am. My one minor criticism is that it makes it seem like middle school and high school are as hard as each other. In reality, middle school is worse because you are trying to figure out who you are and what is happening to you, on top of homework and changes to your body. Other than that, it is extraordinarily accurate and you should really read it (ps. the pyramid diagram is really accurate)

Amazing 👍

Marissa Moss Amelia’s Middle-School Graduation Yearbook

“Each new book is still a challenge. It’s hard work and I love every minute of it!”

Marissa Moss is an author AND an illustrator! When Marissa was nine years old, she wrote her first picture book and sent it to publishers. It wasn’t published, but as a grown-up, Marissa tried again and now she has published over forty books!

Marissa thinks that keeping your own diary or notebook, like her character Mira does, is a great idea! Here are some tips for how to start:

  • No one is the boss of your notebook except you. You can do whatever you want.
  • Since you can do whatever you want, have fun!
  • Add pictures! Sometimes it’s easier (and more fun) to draw something than to write about it.
