Spotlight on Amy Hodgepodge
"For those of you who don't know, my name is Amy Hodges, but my friend, Lola, nicknamed me 'Amy Hodgepodge' because I'm Japanese, African-American, Korean and White. I'm kind of shy-it's always just been me and my doggy, Giggles. I'd been homeschooled my entire life, but when we moved to Dyver City, I talked my parents into letting me attend a real school. Unfortunately, I got off to a rough start at Emerson Charter School. Some kids were mean and teased me about looking different, which really made me sad. But then I met a cool group of kids who became my new best friends." To read more from the delightful childrens book series Amy Hodgepodge, please click here.
