To begin with, she's not going to be just plain Amanda Woods (the girl her mother seems to think is just average). She's going to be Amanda K. Woods-someone who is proud and strong and sure of herself, someone who can have a French pen pal and a best friend of her own choosing, someone who finds four-leaf clovers and can get perfect scores on her math homework. There is more to Amanda than anyone else can see, things about her that Amanda herself doesn't even know yet, but she's finding out. In The Secret Life of Amanda K. Woods, her first novel for older children, Ann Cameron presents a heroine who is philosophical and honest as only a twelve-year-old can be.

Editorial Reviews

"Cameron paints a sensitive portrait of an 11-year-old loner in this story set in 1950s Wisconsin...[Amanda's] growing pains, gracefully conveyed though quiet, contemplative narrative, will hit home with many readers." -Publishers Weekly"Cameron displays a virtuoso gift for precision, telling observations, and creative but unforced imagery." -Starred, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"Amanda K. Woods is a girl to like--she just doesn't know it yet. She's quirky, serious, impulsive, imaginative, perceptive, smart, and now, sharp...Amanda is the story, and she's as funny as she is wise." -Kirkus Reviews, pointer review
