I liked this book except for one incident of fat shaming. What a surprising reminder of how body messages are sent to women from a young age. In one place Amelia draws her mother in a sweater, and then captions it: "Sorry Mom for making you look fat." The woman doesn't look fat, and if she did, why does that matter? Why is that a bad thing? I took a pen and changed it to "fart" so that when I give the book away to my nephew I won't be passing that bad message on to the next generation.

Amelia Writes Again is the sequel to Amelia's Notebook. Well, one of them...I think there are several now. This time, something unfortunate happens at Amelia's school, and she uses her notebook to write her feelings & thoughts about the event.

In addition, Amelia writes about her friendship with Leah and whether or not she should share her notebook with her secrets with her friend.

I might check out one of the other notebooks with Amelia in 7th grade. In this one, she is 10, which is a little
Amelia is back! Her first notebook chronicled her move across country and starting at a new school. This notebook looks at Amelia's attempts to trust her new friend Leah enough to let her read Amelia's notebook. Author Marissa Moss has again done a great job capturing the voice of a 10 year old girl writing in her journal, right down to the doodles in the margins.

Recommends it for: children who enjoy reading journals
This is the second book in the Amelia's Notebooks series by Marissa Moss. At the end of the school year in June, our oldest discovered one of the books in the series, Oh Boy, Amelia!, at a book giveaway at her school. She loved that book and I was surprised to see that there's a whole series of these journals and they're available at our local library. So we decided to read the rest of the series in order.

The narrative is a journal-like tale written by a middle-grade girl who is adjusting to ma

I didn't like this book so much because you don't read that much you could finish that book like in 10 minutes or less but if you like to read those type of books its fine also they are really intersting and fun to read but like they have a few pages and you want to keep on reading more but you already finish the book and so that is what I don't like. there is this girl that likes to write in her diary and when she goes back to school she finds out that her school is burn because somebody burned ...more

1.I liked that this book is meant to look like a journal that has entries of what the character was thinking about and how she was feeling. I also enjoyed this book because it reminds me of my own journals that I have kept over the years where I've written down memories that I didn't want to forget. I liked the fact that the book also had pictures to go along with the journal entries which makes you enjoy the book even more.

2.This Book Does Make Sense Because It's A Bout A Little Girl Who Keepi

1. I read these books when I was a kid and was obsessed with them.
2. I still talk about the thing under your nose being a place where snot funnels into your mouth because of this book.
3. I love her obsession with noses. In her first book she drew all different kinds and now this one she talks about the snot funnel.
4. I'm so happy her sister gave her this notebook.
5. I love the drawings that Amelia does.
6. I'm an English teacher and I have my kids draw and write in a notebook.
7. Perfect for ele

I have one more book to read by Marissa Moss "Amelia" series. Amelia is a very caring person, she cares about what other people feel. I can relate to Amelia's emotions because, in the story her friend Leah wants to read her notebook, but Amelia isn't sure if she should let her. Amelia decided to write stories with Leah in her notebook, and later on show Leah the other stories Amelia wrote. I would recommend this book to all my classmates, just for a real quick read. I rated this book 3 out of 5 ...more

Delightful. I'm keeping it because I want to try to copy some of the artwork. The story is insignificant, but the journal with art is cry appealing.

I can't imagine a young reader not wanting to make their own journal after reading this. After all, it made me want to! Unfortunately, I started out with a finger pointing at something, seen from the side. Looked super easy, but my attempts were pathetic, even when I tried to trace.

This book is excellent to have your older students start a journal at the beginning of the school year. They can write about their time in 4th or 5th grade and about anything else that may be going on in their lives. I like this book because it shows writing from a perspective of girl that students can relate to. This can encourage writing on a whole other level.

I really liked this book! Even though I read 4 years ago, I still read it over and over again. This book was funny, but I found sometimes she kind of overexagerated a little bit too much. But overall this book was great.

I will always love Amelia for showing girls that an artistic spirit perseveres in hard times. I love how real she is as a character, and how she uses humor to get her through. The Amelia series is definitely a treasure in my school library.

Love the humor and how Amelia shows writing can be fun. The doodles and art show the reader writing can be more than words.

This book is called "Amelia Writes Again" because the author has not written an Amelia story in a while. It was cute and funny.

Who is Marissa Moss anyway?

I’ve been making children’s books for a looooong time. I sent my first picture book to publishers when I was nine, but it wasn’t very good and they didn’t publish it. I didn’t try again until I was a grown-up and then it took five years of sending out stories, getting them rejected, revising them and sending them back over and over until I got my first book. Now I’ve pub
