This story is about a little girl named Amelia who has a journal. She writes her thoughts in her notebook and draws in her notebook. One day her school caught on fire. The whole school was depressed about the situation. The school was depressed about the situation because the children thought that they could never go to school again. An old teacher named Ms. Rooney had a fit when she saw her sofa that used to be in the class. She had a yellow sofa with cherries on it. Now she has black patches and springs coming out. She was crying and was angry. If you want to find out what happened to the Ms. Rooney, and Amelia's school then read Amelia Writes Again.

I enjoyed reading this book because it excites me. It excites me because of the things that Amelia does in the story. She says funny things about people like her classmates, her teachers, and her enemies in school. My favorite part was the look on Ms. Rooney's face. She had tears running off her face. She was crying because her sofa was burned. Ms. Rooney reminds me of my friend named Sarah because Sarah cries when she's angry. I think Sarah and other children should read this book because it is a funny and interesting book.

I recommend this book because it is a good book to read and because it is funny. People who like trying to be like another person should read this book because they might learn that they can do stuff by themselves.
