Amazon Description:

Fun and not-so-fun changes are keeping Amber Brown, the most colorful chapter-book character, hopping!

Now that Amber’s mom and Max are married, the three of them are moving to a new house and Amber is worried about more than just packing. How can she leave the home her dad used to live in? And with her dad dating again, how will they ever find time for just the two of them, like they used to? All of these changes make Amber’s head spin, but with standardized tests coming up at school as well as a dance competition, she needs to focus more than ever.…Sometimes, Amber realizes, moving on means taking one step at a time.

Bruce Coville and Elizabeth Levy perfectly capture the magic, heart, and delightfully punny humor of Paula Danziger’s Amber Brown.
