Read full description of the books Ernestine & Amanda:

At the beginning of their first adventure, Ernestine and Amanda agree on one thing: they aren't going to be friends. Ernestine thinks wealthy Amanda is stuck-up. Amanda thinks Ernestine is too fat. But as a year goes by and the lives of these ten-year-old piano students become more and more intertwined, the girls are amazed to discover how much they are beginning to need each other.In the second adventure Ernestine's father has lost his job, Amanda's parents are separating, and neither girl wants to go off to camp. But Ernestine's summer at an Africian-American girl's camp ends up being filled with fun. While Amanda's, at a posh predominantly white camp, forces her to reconsider what it really means to be a friend. "A gentle, sweet, simply told tale of family, community, and friendship.... Will enhance any library's collection". -- School Library Journal

She is perhaps best known for her "Ernestine and Amanda" series about two African-American girls growing up in the 1950s. In an interview with Janice DelNegro for the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books online, Belton noted that the series is enriched by her own experiences as a youngster in small-town West Virginia. "Ernestine and Amanda are the keepers of my childhood memories and dreams," the author remarked. "Their voices echo the ones I heard while chasing lightning bugs and playing at twilight with the kids down the street. The homes they live in and the schools and churches they attend paint a picture of the neighborhoods that nurtured all of us. The events of their lives and the heroes they celebrate are the ones of our heritage."
