Amelia's family is moving and she is not happy about it given that she will be leaving behind her best friend, Nadia. To help her cope with the upheaval, her mother gives her a notebook to write and draw in. And Amelia does pour out her frustration and issues into the book, illustrating it along the way with cleaver drawings.

This book is a cross between a picture book and a chapter book, with its mix of long text passages and colourful drawings. There are also plenty of margin drawings, like you would have in a real notebook, adding to the charm of the book. This book is aimed at the stronger primary reader or regular junior student. Excellent read.
