Amelia is back, with her gang of superheroes and ninjas. This time she is working on figuring out why everyone is being so nice to her. Even the obnoxious triplets! Then she realizes that her Aunt Tanner's old music career is suddenly getting lots and lots of attention. The thing is, Tanner never talks about her life as a musician. Amelia does some investigating and snoops through her mother's things to try and figure out why Tanner is so quiet about the whole thing.

While this is happening, of course, there is superheroe / ninja drama. Kisses are had, Mary Violet becomes Ultra Violet, and Reggie is drunk with power!

Meet Amelia Louise McBride, age twelve. She’s been forced to move out of Manhattan after her parents’ divorce, and is now living in a small town with her mom and her aunt Tanner. She has to deal with being the new kid in school, finding the right friends, getting sent to the principal’s office (many times)—not to mention getting her first kiss. But with the help of G.A.S.P. (Gathering of Awesome Super Pals) members Reggie, Rhonda, and Pajamaman, Amelia knows everything’s going to be okay. Except, of course, when it isn’t. Jimmy Gownley’s graphic-novel series has been nominated for multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards, and is already a hit with kids and librarians alike. Now, ginee seo books/Atheneum Books for Young Readers is proud to present new editions of the first two books in this acclaimed series. Called “a character to rival Ramona” by School Library Journal, Amelia is funny, generous, and real—and reading her is an addictive pleasure that will hook middle-grade readers from the first panel to the last.

Amelia Rules, a fiction written by Jimmy Gownley has both a humorous and life like side. This is a book any kid can relate to! Amelia has tons of stuff going on and even a crush she's trying to impress but just cant find the right words to let him know. The pictures are colorful and the people show a lot of expression. I personally think you will really enjoy reading this book.

‘ Amelia Rules’ is a hard-cover graphic novel series comprised of thirty pages of the comical life of young Amelia Louise McBride. The series is aimed at a young audience as Amelia and her friends take on bullies, school, and family. In ‘Amelia in What Makes You Happy,’ Amelia and her entire school discover that Amelia’s Aunt Tanner is an ex-rock star. Dealing with the sudden attention, Amelia recognizes the importance of true friends and family. The author includes comical antidotes and maintains appropriate content. Although the content and visual images are appropriate, Amelia is portrayed as sassy when dealing with her arch nemesis. The illustrations readily portray movement and sound effects by the frequent usage of squiggly lines and shadows. Young readers will find this series fun and refreshing. ( )

Amelia Rules! contains funny takes on kids’ adventures, but the stories aren’t shallow. The emotions are adult, although the stories cause the reader to temporarily forget about the downsides of being young, just as Amelia’s adventures let her put aside her worries.
