Emily for Real – and for Christmas

Emily for Real Sylvia GunneryAnother great gift idea for the teen readers in your life: Emily for Real by Nova Scotian author Sylvia Gunnery. Look what Kirkus Reviews had to say about this touching coming-of-age novel:

“This is a story about familial ties-ties of blood, ties of love, ties that bind. It’s also about family lies and the way these lies affect core connections. Although protagonist Emily Sinclair’s family is small, it’s complex and is comprised of a variety of household situations: intact, divorced, step, gay, straight, illegitimate and adoptive. …[The story] is genuinely touching at its tear-inducing, hopeful end.”

Emily for Real is available at fine bookstores everywhere – or should be.
