Amelia on the cover

Amelia's 6th-Grade Notebook is Amelia's first middle school notebook, and the seventeenth overall. It was the first notebook to be published by Simon & Schuster, after Marissa Moss left American Girl.

Amelia finally graduates to the sixth grade, and documents the first month or so in her notebook. She goes through ups and downs as she figures out how to navigate middle school.


This notebook is dedicated to Paula, with gratitude for letting Amelia finally graduate from elementary school, and to Elias, Mia, and Emma, for enduring middle school and living to tell the tale.


Amelia describes her agonizing first days in middle school in her latest hand-written journal. Colorful sketches of lockers, teachers, students, and the mazelike building are just some of the visual details that readers will scrutinize as Amelia encounters intimidating eighth graders and faces the question of where to sit in the cafeteria. Worst of all, her English teacher, Mr. Lambaste hates her. Big sister Cleo confesses that she had played a mean trick on Mr. Lambaste and now Amelia's attempt at being nice to him lands her in detention. As her other classes encourage her to look at art and science differently, she also learns to look at life and people differently. When she finally writes Mr. Lambaste a story about getting to know people and seeing them for who they are inside, Amelia realizes she has found a way to see through the personas of the cool kids and has taught her teacher something as well
