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 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!

    They need to accept in more immigrants.  The Japanese are lacking in good culture.  They also need a decrease in population as Japan is severely overpopulated.
