The Truth About Amber: When little fibs turn into great big lies. (English Edition) Kindle版
A young girl is thrown into small town living after a move from the big city. Her family split apart, an ipod with no wifi, and new friendships to build – how will 11 year old Amber cope?
Gran suggests a good old fashioned pen pal to ease the boredom, and a friendship which started out with a few little fibs soon gets out of control! Will pen pal Millie find out ‘The Truth About Amber'? Amber may be in more trouble than she bargained for!
Amber's multi-generational family - an inventive Grandad, a Grandma who is an adventurous cook, and a mum who's trying her best whilst enduring separation and maybe even divorce - make up this tale of coming of age and forgiveness. Oh! and then there's the boy with his great big lolloping shaggy dog who lives nearby.
A fast paced read for 9 to 12 year olds.
An illustrated children's novella in 12 chapters.

it's all too easy for young children to feel lost and in need ...2017年2月9日に英国でレビュー済み
At a time when families take many different forms and divorce, in particular, can be a source of insecurity, it's all too easy for young children to feel lost and in need of a little bit of fantasy. This lovely book highlights how families help to pick up the pieces and set a young girl straight when her fantasies run away with her. A very readable moral tale. I'd love to read a sequel and find out how Amber copes with being a teenager!
The Truth will out2017年7月29日に英国でレビュー済み
When her life takes a turn, Amber is encouraged to write to a pen pal by her Grandmother. Embellishing her life within her letters, Amber’s small lies get bigger and bigger, unknowing that her pen pal is doing the same thing as they seek to outdo each other. A charming tale with a moral, handled with the lightest of touches. Thoroughly recommended.
A Cautionary Tale well told.2014年10月15日に英国でレビュー済み
An engaging morality tale for young teens. The story is set in America but the theme is universal - telling little lies leads to bigger lies and embarrassment when found out. Happily all ends well for two young girls who learn their lesson - with the help of the wiser older generation. My god-daughter aged 10 found it a page-turner and not easy to put down. The author has an easy style and develops the plot with believable twists, and the vocabulary used by the characters will no doubt be well understood by modern children.

Well_crafted story which I thoroughly enjoyed (even if I am in my sixties)! The characters elicited sympathy and were believable. I look forward to more stories by this author.
Excellent characterisation and storyline.2017年7月9日にオーストラリアでレビュー済み
This is a very enjoyable read and I would imagine 9 to 12 year olds could really get into this book. The story reflects modern day life for many people - facing challenges and realities, and working through them. I particularly enjoyed the American settings of both Millie and Amber's homes, along with the cultural nuances as back drop. But most of all, I loved the way that the characters developed throughout the book and the secondary support characters were really well-developed too. The message of truth is always better than the fabricated or exaggerated came through in a good (but not worthy) way and the story hung together and had developing momentum that made you really want to know what was going to happen in the end. The cross-generational aspects to the book were endearing and once finishing the book, I was hoping that there might be a sequel. Highly recommend it and well done to this author for providing such an enjoyable read.
