Publisher's Summary

Author Elizabeth Atkinson’s debut novel for middleschoolers was included in the Bank Street College of Education’s Best Children’s Books of 2009. I, Emma Freke tells of one girl’s search for her identity. Smart and shy, Emma is as close to normal as her family gets. Still, she has a terrible time fitting in at school—and things only get worse when Emma attends her family reunion. Soon, she realizes that she’s better off being herself than someone else’s Freke.

Enjoyable

The story, the telling, and the adventure were all worth my time. I appreciated the novel, and expect my children will enjoy it too.

Such a sweetly, beautiful book.

This book hit the spot. It had a beautifully uplifting story and was full of interesting characters. Sometimes a change of perspective is all you need. I loved every minute.
