When you can choose to be anyone, how do you know who you really are? From the author of Better You Than Me and I Speak Boy comes another fun and relatable book about new experiences and how staying true to yourself is the best way to be okay.

Twelve-year-old Amelia Gray has changed schools thirty-nine times (!!!) because of her dad’s job, which doesn’t leave a lot of time for making friends. But that’s okay. Amelia loves her “life on the go” with Dad and their adorable supermutt, Biscotti. She’s been in enough middle schools to know that friendships are messy, and who needs that?

But when her dad announces that he wants to stay in their new town for the whole summer—maybe even forever—Amelia realizes she’s going to have to do the one thing she’s never had to do: fit in.

So she gives herself not one but three total makeovers, to try out a few personalities and hopefully find her “thing.” Is she Amie, a confident track star? Mellie, a serious journalist? Or Lia, a bold theater kid?

Juggling three identities is hard, and Amelia soon finds herself caught in the kind of friendship drama she has always managed to avoid. Yet despite her best efforts, she still can’t answer the most important question of all: Who is the real Amelia Gray?
Jessica Brody is the author of I Speak Boy, Better You Than Me, and Addie Bell's Shortcut to Growing Up as well as several books for teens, including Sky Without Stars, Between Burning Worlds, The Geography of Lost Things, A Week of Mondays, and 52 Reasons to Hate My Father. She also writes the Descendants: School of Secrets series, based on the hit Disney Channel original movie Descendants. She lives near Portland, Oregon, with her husband and three very barky dogs who will do anything for cheese.
