I, Emma Freke

Elizabeth Atkinson (2010), 233 pages
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
Category: Especially for Girls, Fiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Highly intelligent, 12 year old Emma bemoans her height, bright red hair and extremely laid back hippie single mother who acts and dresses like a teenager. Even worse is her last name from a father Emma can't even remember. She envies the more structured life of her only friend who's been adopted from Nigeria. Summer comes and Emma is unexpectedly invited to a family reunion of her father's Freke family. At first, she feels she's found a place she really belongs. They're all tall, red haired and really like following schedules and rules. They even pronounce their last name Frecke to rhyme with Becky ' not Freak as she has always been taught. When Emma finds out not everyone is as accepted as she is into her new-found family, she questions what she first believed and learn to value the independence she shares with her free spirited mother. This is a book about the many types of families, and the importance of unconditional acceptance and love.
