    Emily Webster is my hero She is at once an unabashed flag waving patriot, and a passionate advocate for Syrian refugees This is, I think, my third reading of this book, but the first in a good long while I had thought I remembered it pretty well, but it turned out there were lots of details I hadn t remembered, such as how great Cab a minor character from the main series is in this book And also that Betsy makes an appearance I had also forgotten just how sad the first half of the book is Emily Webster is my hero She is at once an unabashed flag waving patriot, and a passionate advocate for Syrian refugees This is, I think, my third reading of this book, but the first in a good long while I had thought I remembered it pretty well, but it turned out there were lots of details I hadn t remembered, such as how great Ca...

    This book has amood or presence that simply permeates it in a way that I expect is powerful for those who connect strongly to it The sense of isolation from your crowd, of wanting to belong even while knowing it is impossible and, worse, existing on a fringe where you are accepted and welcome but still just that wee bit off is extremely strong in this book and conveyed with an understanding and depth that is very evocative.I had a couple problems connecting to the book, though, and not a This book has amood or presence that simply permeates it in a way that I expect is powerful for those who connect strongly to it ...

    I never came across this companion book to the Betsy Tacy series when I was a young teenager, and I wonder if I would have loved it as much as a 13 year old reader as I did as a middle aged one Emily does not have the effervescence of personality or the fun loving friends and family which characterise Betsy Ray, and contribute to so much of the charm of those books She is a much quieter heroine, and the book details her struggles with feelings of inadequacy, self doubt and depression For I never came across this companion book to the Betsy Tacy series when I was a young teenager, and I wonder if I would have loved it as much as a 13 year old reader as I did as a middle aged one Emily does not have the effervescence of personality or the fun loving friends and family which characterise Betsy Ray, and contribute to so much of the charm of those books She is a much quieter heroine, and the book details her struggles with feelings of inadequacy, self doubt and depression For much of the book, Emily lets herself be in the background for almost everyone except her grandfather, who is in her care She lets her friends ignore and dismiss her she lets a narcissistic boy take advantage of her kindness and she lets herself feel limited by her own horizons But for a certain kind of reader, I think that Emily is absolutely the perfect heroine She has her own strengths and convi...
