Pdf Ø The Evolution of Emily ¼ Kate Scott

Emily Charles knows how to run away Away from her overprotective agoraphobic mother Away from her biology obsessed autistic sister Away from her uiet sheltered claustrophobic homeschooled life When Emily's escape plan involves starting her I shouldn't look at other reviews on a book before writing my own because they make me doubt myself For me this is a 5 star book a book that I was engaged in kept reading past my allotted reading time thought about between reading sessions thought about after I'd finished the book and will happily recommend to others My only regret that gave me any pause at all was my feeling that the ending was a bit rushed But all the right stuff was there so I'm willing to forgive itOkay so on to what I thought I knew very little about the book when I first started reading so it was a pleasant surprise to discover that Sam the main character in Scott's first book Counting to D played a part I loved getting just a bit of an update on Sam's life and how she was doing beyond the ending of her story So that was a really nice treatI enjoyed Emily's journey and how running was a theme used to show Emily's growthAs in her first book I loved Scott's easy use of smart stuff which is so often absent from YA books In this story Emily isn't the smartest one though she's no slouch but biology and chemistry are used to connect with her autistic sister a way to bridge the gap between this socially awkward girl and the world around her This story deals with mental health lifestyle choices homosexuality stereotyping You'd think a book with all of that in it would be heavy handed but it totally isn't It was light and easy and yet managed to touch on these issues and with a kind of depth that seems improbable Kate Scott has a deft hand at addressing many of the issues facing teens today doing it in such a way that feels easy and real She writes like a friend someone you could trust your secrets with someone you could trust your heart with Yep I don't regret my 5 stars The Evolution of Emily is excellent If you're a human and like contemporary YA fiction you should read it
