Author: Ginger Rue
Ages: 12 and up


It may have a lime-green cover and hot-pink letters forming the title, but Ginger Rue’s brand-new book, Brand-New Emily, is a whole lot deeper than it looks (hey – didn’t your mom always tell you not to judge a book by its cover?!).


The Story

The book is about Emily, a girl who is picked on at her new school because of unfortunate experiences in her first few days there. So it’s pretty much her luckiest break in a while when she gets the chance to meet a teen heartthrob at a movie shoot and starts using the services of his own personal PR manager for her own purposes.


There are a lot of subplots going on at the same time that Emily is trying to reinvent herself – her mom has passed away, her uncle and father are struggling to care for her and school life is constantly changing around her.


A really interesting thing about this book is it gives a lot of information and details about the field of public relations and how celebrities and products are advertised and hyped. But if you pick up this book hoping to read some inside scoop on your real-life fave celeb, forget about it. The characters are all made up.


Emily

Emily is a great character, and a pretty good representation of an average tween/almost-teen girl. You may learn a thing or two about the way girls in junior high think and act – very eye-opening stuff!

    Old School or New School - What's Better?

    • Old School!
    • New school rap is way better.
    • I like both.
    • I don't listen to rap music.

    Love it or hate it, the crazy theory of Flat Earth is gaining a lot of popularity and movement world wide. What's your opinion? Remember, regardless of what anyone says, keep an open mind and don't bash. I'm curious to see why people believe the way they do, or if they have facts and evidence to support their claims. So, do you believe the Earth is flat....or spherical?

    No, AlphaT won't be missed. And he totally isn't tearing up right now.  Thank you. I know it sounds unoriginal, but getting to know all of you has been an absolute privilege. Each of you made my time here worthwhile, and it's nice knowing that I've done the same for you all.  Goodbye!
