9780761385004: I, Emma Freke

Life wasn't always like this. In fact, when I was younger and shorter and dumber I usually had one or two friends to play with at recess. My grades were good, but nothing special. Then my height and brains took off one summer as if someone watered me with too much fertilizer. Even my dull hair turned redder. To make matters worse--to make matters impossibly worse--my name is Emma Freke. Like, if you say it slowly, Am a Freak.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Atkinson was raised in Harvard, Massachusetts. In 1983, she earned a Bachelor of Arts cum laude (with honors in Anthropology) from Hobart & William Smith Colleges. In 1995 Elizabeth completed her Master of Arts degree in Liberal Studies (with a concentration in creative writing) at Dartmouth College.
Throughout the years she has worked as a copy editor, editorial assistant, and the executive director of a pen pal organization for teens, as well as an English Instructor, children s librarian, newspaper columnist, and freelance writer.
In 1991, Elizabeth published Monster Vehicles (Capstone). Many years later, her middle grade novel, From Alice to Zen and Everyone in Between (Carolrhoda), was released in February 2008 and has been included in the Bank Street College of Education s BEST CHILDREN S BOOKS of 2009 (100th Anniversary Edition). In April of 2009, her young adult nonfiction book, GLEE!: An Easy Guide to Gluten-Free Independence (Clan Thompson LLC) was released, and Atkinson frequently gives gluten-free talks throughout the northeast region. Her next tween novel, I, Emma Freke, is out in Fall 2010. Currently, she is working on a new middle grade book, Dear Gabby, It's Me Ruby.
Ms. Atkinson lives most of the time on the North Shore of Massachusetts with her husband, two children, and chocolate labradoodle . . . but spends many weekends at her cottage in the Maine mountains hiking, reading and, of course, writing.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-Emma is resigned to the seeming reality that her name, spoken aloud, is her identity. Just 12, bright and nearly six feet tall, she feels invisible at school in her New England coastal town. Her mother, Donatella, owns a bead shop, and the many beads in her shop, with individual shapes, colors, and origins, are an apt metaphor for the novel's cast of varied characters. Quiet Emma, for instance, keeps lists to organize her life and often feels like the adult to her short, round Italian mother, who dresses and acts like a teenager. She wonders if she's adopted like her friend, Penelope, a nine-year-old from Liberia, who lives with her two mothers across the street and urges Emma to find her "joylah." Emma is dubious when Donatella proposes that she be homeschooled at the public library, but school officials agree to the proposal, and Stevie, a cool librarian, becomes her tutor. Then she receives an invitation to the Freke Family Reunion at a Wisconsin campground and flies out to meet the clan of Walter Freke, the father she's never met. The reunion proves to be a life-changing weekend, for Emma connects with cousins who look like her, gains a sense of belonging, and discovers her surname rhymes with Becky. Yet, upon seeing the rigid control enforced by the reunion organizer, she begins to appreciate her unstructured home life and confidently stands up against the culture of intolerance aimed at her eccentric, odd-looking cousin, who, like her old self, just doesn't fit in. A well-paced story told with heart and humor.-Susan W. Hunter, Riverside Middle School, Springfield, VT (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Descripción Lerner Publishing Group, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. I, Emma Freke, am not a freak. Or maybe I am. I just dont know. What s in a name? I, Emma Freke is a charming search-for-identity story about Emma?the only normal member of her quirky family. Her flighty, New Age mom seems to barely have time for a daughter, especially one who annoyingly spoils her mom s youthful faade. Emma s well-meaning grandpa is clueless. And her only friends are the local librarian and a precocious 10-year old adopted by the two old ladies next door. Smart, shy, and nearly six feet tall, Emma struggles to fit in at school, so she jumps at the opportunity to home school until that too turns into another of mom s half-baked ideas. The real crisis comes when she gets an invitation to The Freke Family Reunion, and her fellow Frekes aren t at all what she expects. While Emma desperately tries to find her niche, she discovers that perhaps its better to be her own freak than someone elses Freke. Nº de ref. de la librería AAC9780761385004
