When the Past Is a Present

When the Past Is a Present

(Part of Amelia Rules!)
Illustrated by: Jimmy Gownley
For Ages: 7 - 12
Love leads in the fourth 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.

In this fourth installment of Amelia Rules!, Amelia discovers a box of old photos and learns a thing or two about love, rebellion, and what it means to be a family.
