Amanda/Miranda (YA abridged version) - Richard Peck Amanda/Miranda was kind of like an interesting twist on the Prince and the Pauper. I liked the story and the little twists and turns in it. Amanda is a rich girl living in England and Mary is soon to be her maid (and soon to be renamed Miranda upon Amanda's insistence). The girls are practically twins. Amanda realizes she can use this to her advantage when it comes to the two men in her life. Unfortunately, the girls end up headed for American on the Titanic and Amanda's plan may not work out the way she hoped.
