Biography Edit

When Karen Brewer first meets Pamela, she wants to impress her and become friends with her. Pamela comes to Karen's sleepover party, but it doesn't take long for Karen to realize that Pamela is not fun to be around at all. Pamela is also introduced in The Kids in Ms. Colman's Class book Holiday Time - which takes place at the same time as Karen's Sleepover. However, Holiday Time focuses on Sara Ford, who thought Pamela was cool although she never really interacted with her. This book reveals that Audrey Green dislikes Pamela. Sara later comes to the understanding that Pamela doesn't have a good personality.

In Baby Animal Zoo, Pamela thinks most of the girls (besides Jannie and Leslie) in her class are goody-goody babies. She thinks Karen is a loudmouth know it all. She liked to tease Natalie about her socks always falling down. She calls Terri Barkan and Tammy Barkan babies. She thought classmate Addie Sidney was strange.

In Karen's Runaway Turkey she says her grandparents live in Florida and that they would go sailing. When she's older, her grandmother promises Pamela she would teach her how to sail. Her mom has relatives in Pennsylvania in Karen's Hurricane and had left before the storm had hit. She got a new pair of shoes while she was gone.

She and Jannie had fought over a position on the Fun Night Committee in Karen's Magician. Neither of them won and eventually made up.

In book #15 Karen's in Love, she celebrated her eighth birthday.
