The twelve-year-old beauty queen in school is one of the people Holly dislikes most in Donkleywood. Amanda is a year older than Holly and the others and constantly mocks Holly for the ragged old boy’s clothes the Smoralls make her wear. Most of all, Amanda ridicules Holly’s artistic skills. She calls Holly the “Scribble Queen” because most of her drawings look like nothing but messy doodles.

Amanda is very talented at painting and likes to show off her skills. She is confident, conceited, and enjoys badmouthing people.

Because of an unfortunate incident, Amanda ends up joining Holly and her friends on their trip to Magora. But to everybody’s surprise, the mean beauty queen develops into someone completely unexpected—someone Holly can call a friend.
