Amber Brown loves the holidays. The shopping, the wrapping, the unwrapping. She isn´t having any trouble with gifts, but life is another story. She´s so happy her dad has moved back to New Jersey, but her mom isn´t. It means the beginning of shared custody, and that means more fighting. Amber feels as if half of her belongs to her mom and half of her belongs to her dad, and that doesn´t feel good at all. Then her mom says she can´t get her ears pierced, but her dad doesn´t know that. Amber makes a decision. Something has to belong to her, so why shouldn´t it be her ears? Full of the fun, humor, and the punny dialogue Paula Danziger´s famous for, this is a winning entry in the ever-popular series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dana Lubotsky.
