Emma Healy has grown used to being the only ordinary one in her rather extraordinary family. But when she finds a birth certificate for a twin brother she never knew she had, along with a death certificate dated just two days later, she realizes why she never felt quite whole. She sets off on a trip to visit her brother’s grave. Peter Finnegan, her neighbor, comes along for the ride. Emma thinks they can’t possibly have anything in common, but with each passing mile, they find themselves learning more and more about themselves and each other.

    I am reading the book “You Are Here” By Jennifer e. Smith This book is about a young adult named Emma. One day she was looking through her attic and going through boxes, and boxes. At the very bottom of one of the boxes were birth certificates of her brothers Patrick, and Nate, and her sister Annie. Under hers was another certificate which had the same birthday as Emma. Just after that she realized that it was her twin brother Thomas, who had died just two days after they were born. Emma had no idea that she had a twin. Emma didn’t know if she should ask her parents if it was true. In chapter two a new character is introduced, and his name is Peter. At this point I don’t know if Peter knows Emma. I do know that he has an obsession with all types of maps. He lives in New Jersey and the only place he has visited is New York City. Peter has always had a passion for travelling. I would recommend this book to older kids because there are a lot of challenging words, and could be hard to understand.
