Amelia is excited to graduate from middle school, but she's nervous about starting high school, especially when she finds out she won't have her best friend, Carly, with her. In her graduation yearbook, drawings and "photos" nostalgically recap her earlier years and notebooks as Amelia figures out how to face the changes ahead.
First off, I need to say how much I love how this book looks and is set up - Amelis is writing to us in a composition notebook and this layout shows it. You have the comp notebook cover pattern and inside there is a graphic that looks just like the notebook's schedule feature and throughout it is just adorable. The book it handwritten so it really has that diary/ notebook feel from Amelia's point of view and it is filled with sketches so that the reader can visualize Amelia's notes.
Amelia’s Graduation Yearbook is about a lot of things – mostly the transition from an 8th grader to a 9th grader but also about siblings, friendships, and living in the moment. I really enjoyed how this book was written and the plot of it. Leaving middle-school can be a really stressful time and add in an annoying older sister and having to go into that new school without knowing what to expect is a whole other challenge.
I think that young readers will enjoy this read very much – it really pinpoints some good issues for the transition between middle and high school and how best to resolve them. This is a good book for those making the transition and even parents wanting to know what their pre-teens are going through. Very cute, very fun, a good read.
