        Emmie isn't particularly smart. She isn't the class clown, or the dropout, or the jock. What if she doesn't have any special hardships? What if she's just...normal? Emmie hasn't always been the heroine of her own story, but she's about to, as a character named Katie - sweet, popular, and pretty - forms on the pages. Suddenly, Emmie's at war with her own perfect character, and things get heated quickly in this beautiful novel about self-appreciation by Terri Libenson.

                  This is a great book that all shy people without many friends can relate to. Emmie, a shy artist, is suddenly greatly noticed, but definitely not in a good way: after writing a deep love poem about her crush, Tyler Ross, Emmie drops her poem and it gets in the hands of the school clown, Joe, who tells everybody about Emmie’s feelings for Tyler. At the same time, Katie, a popular girl in the same school as Emmie who also likes Tyler, is a little surprised at the news at first, but then pities Emmie because she is so embarrassed. In the end, however, almost all goes back to normal. Still curious about what happens? Four words: READ THIS BOOK!,

                      It all starts when a love letter from the quiet girl, Emmie, is accidentally slipped out and soon the whole school knows about it. But when the most popular girl and Emmie start to change their roles, something happens. I would recommend this for ages 10+ So I really loved this book because the character's feelings were super easy to feel and the plot was super cool. I would recommend this to fans of Raina Telgeimer.
