Well, this is not as good as the original Amalee. The characters are all there and still quirky, but they feel more forced than anything.

In this story Amalee inherits a big bottle of coins from the grandmother she barely knew, and decides to make a film about conservation with the money. While this plot is touching, the family friends who were so unique and supporting in the first book came off as a little annoying in this one.

The sense of urgency which made the first so gripping is also missing.

Still Amalee's voice is fresh and honest in a world of fluffy girly books which capitalize on terms like, "OMG!!!!!!!!"

Read the first, this is optional but not bad.
