Once you first met Amelia Louise McBride you understood immediately why Amelia Rules. Amelia was real, as were her friends and family, even those wannabe superheroes like Pajamaman. Amelia has dealt with parents divorcing, moving to a different city, new school, new friends, “dating,” and – worse! – her mom dating a man not her father.
Eleven years and many comic books, self published trades, and seven collected volumes later, Amelia Rules! Volume 8 Her Permanent Record brings Jimmy Gownley’s Amelia Rules series to an end — I’m hoping not a permanent end!
In this “last” book in the series Amelia is now on the cheerleading squad, her friend Reggie is finding success, her Aunt Tanner was finding success again in the music field, but like Peter Parker you know something has to happen when life runs too smoothly. When Amelia’s aunt Tanner disappears it’s up to her to get on the bus and try to find her and bring her home to family and friends.
Jimmy has a way to make the most absurd characters real and those already real like family. Amelia definitely rules!
