An imaginative, original and quirky debut by Emma
' ... a beautifully written story.' INDEPENDANT
'Funny, poignant ... wise and accessible' WALL
Amber Alessandra Leola Kimiko Miyamoto. As if her name made up
for being tiny, half Japanese and half Italian, and starting a new
school with a caveman phone. Dream on!
But the hardest bit about being Amber is that a part of her is
missing. Her dad. He left when she was little and if he isn't
coming back, she'll have to sort things out another way.
And Amber has a big imagination ...
Gorgeous, rejacketed reissue of critically acclaimed
Emma Shevah's debut, a funny, moving, beautifully written story of
a girl coping with her missing dad.
Explores themes about the modern-day dysfunctional family:
being mixed-race, starting school and finding your individuality.
Illustrated with funny and quirky black-and-white doodles.
