Reviews for Amelia in Speak Softee to Me
Library Media Connection Reviews 2011 May/June
After her parents' divorce, Amelia McBride and her mom move to a small town in Pennsylvania. Although she misses her dad, Amelia copes with the help of her idiosyncratic new friends. This colorful comic series is likely to appeal to fans of the Babymouse series (Random House) and adults looking for graphic novels for younger students. Amelia and her only female friend frequently exchange barbs about personal appearance even after an adult objects to their behavior, which I found somewhat troublesome. Additional Selection.
