Dear Diary Readers, I just read the most increadible book! Amalia Diary 3 is officially my favorite California Diary book. I have noticed that in these books the charactures usually stick to the same many problems. Like Dawn with Carol, Sunny with her parents, Maggie with Anorexia and movie stars, Ducky with his friends, and Amalia with relationship problems. Amalia Diary 3 is not all about her relationship problems anymore. The writing on the pages takes a sudden twist and her ideals shatter to the ground. Something that will hurt and help her in different ways happens. So, puh-lease read this book. I loved it! Love,A Diary Reader

this book was really,really good. my only problem is that i wish that this book was longer. their so easy to read. and when you get to the end your like 'Oh . . .that's it?' and amalia is my favorite character. and i thought that those racist girls shared one brain between them or something, cause how can you judge someone by the color of thier skin? it's just the type of thing a moron would do. a complete idiot. But i'm glad that amalia was able to see what they really were and go beyond what they expected of her. i'll leave you with this word of advice:READ THIS BOOK!

This was such a great book. I love California Diaries, why does it take Ann M. Martin so long to write them? Normally, the diaries focused on certain problems each character had. Maggie, another girl, had an eating disorder and had a lot of family problems. Amalia struggled with an abusive relationship, Sunny struggled with her mother's cancer, and then later tried to cope with the death of her mother. This book took a shocking twist when Amalia was attacked (verbally abused, then spat on) by a group of girls because of the fact that she is hispanic. Amalia has a really hard time dealing with this, but eventually pulls through. The book also focused on her friendship with Maggie, and her new relationship with boyfriend Brendan. I love these books and thought this one was great. Maggie is my favorite character (though Amalia is awesome, too), and I loved how good friends she and Amalia are. Read it, I bet you will love it!

Amalia, Diary Three was one of the better California Diaries books. It's great that there's a series for teenagers which portrays more to life than little boy troubles and other pre-pubescent junk - but real angst and events that happen to us. All people, whether or not a survivor of a racist incident, can relate to being discriminated against - and this book can help you get through it. CD #14 was excellent, though I wish it had been a little longer. Go read! :)

This book demonstrates the horror of racism. And when you read it you get deeper and deeper into Amalia's thoughts. Don't pass this book up. I recommend this book for all ages, all races, and both male and female.

A Kid's Review on October 25, 2002
Format: Paperback
Ok So I have read so many books in my life and when I read this book. It was one of the best books I have ever read. I mean I was reading the reviews and some girl said it was for 10 year olds? Well I want to say that 10 year old girls do not get stalked. The book was great and talked a lot about real life situations. I mean getting stalked is not a good thing and it can be terrifying! So this book gets a 5 star rating for me, but DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT read it until you have read books 1-13 in order!
