The Evolution of EmilyEmily 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 was hoping for a ‘smart’ story with a character that despite the issues in their life was moving forward growing and learning Not having read Scott’s earlier book I was unfamiliar with her style and storytelling and was surprisingly pleased with this gem of a book Emily is ostensibly a typical teen girl who has a series of issues that are becoming common in today’s society an autistic sister an agoraphobic mother and having to learn the social coping mechanisms that are so unfamiliar since she was in a homeschool environment If the social awkwardness isn’t enough – it’s a new school with new people and everything feels new and different Except her running – the one thing that keeps her grounded And Emily is a runner first away from the cloistered and confining boundaries of home and to new options opportunities and a perspective on life Full of smartly inserted insets that use biology and chemistry to make points and add depth Scott has developed a wonderful character in Emily giving her depth and showing her growth as she learns to navigate the world outside her home and developing new ways to relate and navigate the difficulties at home The careful portrayal of her mother and sister add heart and a sense of honesty to both the emotional toll and the frustrations from all sides Learning and dealing with the social scene at school is wonderfully detailed and gives an opportunity for the author to add in some fairly deep issues that are handled with care neither becoming heavy handed and preachy nor passing them off as unimportant From mental health to lifestyle choices homosexuality and stereotyping Scott touches on each issue with care giving readers the opportunity to learn and understand while leaving them without judgment from the story of the ‘right or wrong’ Readers can learn empathize experience and start to understand the depth and difficulties in someone else’s life that may not be instantly apparent and come out the richer for it My first opportunity to read this author and it is a story that I can’t recommend highly enough While I did feel that there was a race to the end to wrap up several hanging threads for the most part the text and pacing gave the characters plenty of time to develop and grow with nice insets of friendship learning and humor I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility

Kate Scott Ü The Evolution of Emily pdf

Junior year at Kennedy High School she realizes she's no longer running away Now she's running towards Towards her uiet thoughtful cross country teammate August Towards her zany enthusiastic lab partner Miles Towards friendship love indep Sixteen year old Emily starts the story with a monumental step; she jogs right into the nearest high school and asks for an application form behind her mother's back It's clear from beginning on that her family is not exactly ordinary her mother has major social phobia issues really she's certifiable and Emily's younger sister Olivia is autistic But this isn't the story of how Emily gains courage to break free of her isolated home schooled life This story covers the next step what ripples her actions create and how she deals with them This is a heart warming enjoyable story Emily's act of bravery immediately demands sympathy and her loving personality doesn't let the reader go She forces herself to embrace a new life but at the same time is unsure how to really pull it through When things seem too much she runs Literally This sudden somewhat insane reaction gave a great twist to her otherwise pretty level headed personality It makes her realistic After all who could lead such an insanely isolated life and come out completely 'normal'? The school scenes are well done making it easy to get lost in Emily's world The dialogue is realistic and the other characters are likable There's a sweet romance and a lot of confusion perfect for this age group Probably one of the most driving things about this story is the weaving in of people with different outlooks on life andor challenges Not only are Emily's mother and sister portrayed with different challenges but the people Emily meets at school don't fit in the normal perfect high school image Although I found this array of characters almost too colorful the author manages to weave them together so that it never really feels like it goes over board Obviously there's a lot of issues with acceptance fitting in and learning to embrace ones self In other words great themes for teens Summed up this is an enjoyable read I can especially recommend it to teenage girls who like real life stories about high school with a nice dab of boys and first love thrown in I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review
