Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“First published in 1974, Paula Danziger’s compassionate and accurate portrayal of a young girl struggling to find her own voice rings as true today as it did 30 years ago. A full cast brings this modern American classic of teenage angst to life with humor and pathos.” School Library Journal

Author Bio: Paula Danziger

Paula Danziger (1945–2004) was an American children’s book author. Beginning her career as a teacher, she taught at the junior high, high school, and college levels. She went on to receive her master’s degree and during that time wrote her first bestselling novel, The Cat Ate My Gymsuit. She returned to teaching, but the success of her book encouraged her to become a full-time writer. Some her most critically acclaimed works include the Amber Brown series, Remember Me to Harold Square, The Divorce Express, and Can You Sue Your Parents for Malpractice? In her memory, The Amber Brown Fund was established to bring authors and illustrators to schools and libraries which otherwise could not afford them.
