Présentation de l'éditeur

This sparkling fiction debut from singer-songwriter Dar Williams introduces an endearing new character to middle-grade literature.

Amalee's world is all out of order. She's used to chaos, because of the frequent presence of her father's bantering, bickering group of fun friends. But when Amalee's dad becomes seriously ill, the chaos takes new forms -- and the ways of coping come from some very unexpected places.
With clear-eyed, tender, funny prose, Dar Williams gives us a child's-eye view of a world under pressure, with everyone rising to the occasion in his or her own unique way. Both moving and wise, this marks the debut of a major middle-grade talent.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Hug for "Amalee" 25 avril 2004
Par Little Willow - Publié sur
In her fiction debut, Dar Williams introduces us to Amalee, an only child whose work is turned upside down when her single father becomes ill. Though she is an only child, Amalee is surrounded by adults - her father's best pals.
The adults have been close since their days in college. None of them have children with the exception of Amalee's dad, so she alternates between feeling like one of the group or feeling too young around all of them. One woman is a therapist, full of advice for Amalee; another woman is a chatterbox. One is an aspiring artist; another is an aspiring chef, always cheery, who has Amalee assist him with a late-night cooking fest.
Amalee thinks about others frankly - a la Alice in the Phyllis Reynolds Naylor series - but often bites her tongue, keeping secrets to herself. She does not want her classmates and teachers to know her father is sick; she does not want her father and his friends to know that she herself has no friends at school.
Ultimately, Amalee finds herself thankful for the extended family she has in her father's friends - and finds some new friends of her own. Readers can relate to (and discuss) Amalee's fear of loss and her fear of being a bully-by-association. This is a heartwarming book, not too sappy, not too cliché. It is a clean, quick read, good for young readers and their families.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent 25 avril 2004

I received this book today as a gift, and I read it all in one sitting. I loved it. I related to Amalee, even though the details of her life as an eleven-year-old are quite different than the details of mine were, because her character is very authentic. The level at which she examines her life, the way she struggles between what she thinks and what she can manage to say, is intelligent, yet authentically preteen. As the novel progresses, the other characters grow beyond caricatures in the same way that I think an eleven-year-old begins to see adults (and herself) as layered people.
Best of all, the book just made me feel good without attacking me with a bunch of lame, blatant emotional missiles. And it achieves what I think is the responsibility young adult literature has over other types of literature: it teaches a lesson, offers the reader something to take with him or her about growing up, in a very genuine way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 highly recommended for dar fans, kids, pretty much everyone 20 avril 2004
Par Franklin Demuth - Publié sur
I thought Amalee was great. The story and characters were engaging, and the writing and imagery were certainly on a par with Dar's usual level of excellence. It reminded me quite a bit of Nora Raleigh Baskin's books, which are also set in Ulster County, NY (definitely check these out if you enjoyed Amalee). Dar has an exceedingly rare gift: the ability to tell beautiful, interesting stories via both song and novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worthy of Dar 2 août 2004
Par WanderingStorm - Publié sur
I was a little nervous when I started to read this book. I love Dar William's music, but I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this. I had nothing to worry about. I was very impressed by her writing style and the tale she had to tell. The book is very easy to read. It flows from beginning to end. The tale is one that everyone can understand and be moved by. Everyone's been 11 years old and felt like everything around them is going crazy. Everyone's had the same feelings as Amalee. And I'm sure everyone has parents who have at least one "crazy" friend. Or is a parent and has that friend.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amalee Amazing!!!!!! 29 avril 2006
Par Tabi - Publié sur
I've just finished reading Amalee by Dar Williams. This book is possibly the best book I have ever read, unless I have read an absolutely mind-blowing story in my sleep that I don't remember reading. One thing I love about the book is the way that people change character the further in to the book you get. For instance Dr.Nurstrom changes from someone who is very pompous and strict to someone who ends up being quite different... Another example is Ms Severance who goes from disliking Amalee to having their own secret conversations during class that only them and the reader understands. Their language is almost all in metaphors. This brings me onto my next point. Until now I have never read a book with so many metaphors in it. This book is a brilliant example of how to solve problems at home and at school. It's funny, exciting, sad in places and generally EXCELLENT!!!!
