Overview

"A gutsy girl in a laugh-out-loud book that navigates tough issues with finesse." --Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

My name is Amber Alessandra Leola Kimiko Miyamoto.

As a half-Japanese, half-Italian girl with a ridiculous name, Amber's not feeling molto bene (very good) about making friends at her new school.

But the hardest thing about being Amber is that a part of her is missing. Her dad. He left when she was little and he isn't coming back. Not for her first day of middle school and not for her little sister's birthday. So Amber will have to dream up a way for the Miyamoto sisters to make it on their own...
