What Makes You Happy

(Part of Amelia Rules!)
Illustrated by: Jimmy Gownley
For Ages: 7 - 12
Amelia and the gang are back in the second volume in the comics sensation Amelia Rules!—now repackaged as a hardcover!

Meet Amelia Louise McBride. She’s been forced to move out of Manhattan after her parents decided to get divorced, and is now living in a small town (who cares which one) with her mom and her aunt, Tanner. Not to mention the fact that she’s dealing with being the new kid in school, many trips to the principal’s office, first kisses, etc. But you know what? She’s got her friends Reggie, Rhonda, and Pajamaman, and everything’s going to be okay. Except, of course, when it isn’t.

This second volume in the hit series finds G.A.S.P. (Gathering of Awesome Super Pals) learning more about Amelia's mysterious rock star aunt Tanner, dealing with first love, figuring out what it takes to be a superhero, and proving that eggs aren't just a part of a balanced breakfast.
