100 Books in 2013: I, Emma Freke

Book 30: I, Emma Freke by Elizabeth Atkinson

It doesn't help that almost 6' tall Emma has the name she does: Am A Freak!  That's exactly how she feels.  Introverted but gifted, Emma confides in her best friend, the 10 year old neighbor, and displays a lackluster for life.  But when she receives an invitation to the Freke family reunion, she thinks that maybe this will explain why she is nothing like her outgoing Italian mother.  The summer trip opens her eyes to her family and what's important and helps her discover herself.
