As she's dancing on her kitchen counter, she isn't thinking about anything but the fun she's having. Then Emily Carson is watching the news. The plane her parents were on crashed! The only thing left was a tray table with the words "EMILY PLEASE FORGIVE ME," in lipstick. Now Emily is living in New York and everything is new. Her new school's swim champ has his eyes on her. Her chemistry partner isn't bad either. Now her big worry is which one to choose.
This book hits hard with a very deep message to kids. Jennifer Jabaley handled this subject matter with grace and dignity. The characters are ones you'd see anywhere in the world. Emily is a very relate-able character and what she deals with, children handle every day.
I found no issues with this one.
I gave this book 5 cheers out of 5 for originality and creativity.
