Amanda Delaney is an eight year old second grader who formerly went to Stoneybrook Day School. Her younger brother is Max Delaney. She lived across the street and one house over from Watson Brewer on McLelland Road until she moved away with her family to Lawrenceville, CT after her father got a new job.
Before their move, Amanda's wealthy family lived in a huge house in McLelland Drive which had six bedrooms, a playroom, a modern kitchen with "outer space gadgets," a dressing room, a fish fountain in the front foyer, and a library. Amanda and Karen Brewer were good friends, although Hannie Papadakis considered her a mortal enemy. Amanda's new house was ten times bigger than her old house and especially Karen's Daddy's House (and his house is a mansion).
Amanda has a six year old brother named Max and a white Persian cat named Priscilla that cost four hundred dollars. Amanda can sometimes come off as snobby when talking about her house. She and Karen like to play Lovely Ladies and go diving in her pool. Her bedroom closet is bigger than Karen's little house bedroom and she has many toys. She also has a piece of her "Mommy Blanket" and a Peter Rabbit lamp that she treasures. Her father is a lawyer.
Amanda and Karen once made the washer at the Delaney house spew suds all over. They also once tried to rearrange all of the library books in alphabetical order. Amanda's next door neighbor, Shannon Kilbourne, often babysat for the Delaney family. Her living room is all white. Stacey was the only babysitter who could deal with her. She really likes soda. She is eight years old and in third grade. She entered her cat in the BSC pet show. Her cat is four hundred dollars and she always keeps reminding everyone what it costs. She and her brother often invited friends over to their pool, and it made many fake friends. No swimming is allowed in her pool when the babysitter is there. She wears a green bikini sometimes.
