Kami Garcia, the NY Times bestselling author, has quoted about "teenagers" as:
“Teenagers. Everything is so apocalyptic.”
Kate Scott, the American author, who once enchanted us with her debut book, Counting to D, has once again left us mesmerized by yet another YA tale called, The Evolution of Emily . They say high school is one of the most bizarre periods of a person's life and getting and coming through it is one of the biggest challenges in life. Likewise, Kate's protagonist, Emily is one of teenager, who is going through the most bizarre periods of her life and Emily's decisions and life-altering changes will not only make you like her but will also enlighten you in a way.
Emily Charles knows how to run away. Away from her overprotective, agoraphobic mother. Away from her biology-obsessed, autistic sister. Away from her quiet sheltered claustrophobic home schooled life. When Emily's escape plan involves starting her junior year at Kennedy High School, she realizes she's no longer running away. Now she's running towards. Towards her quiet thoughtful cross-country teammate, August. Towards her zany enthusiastic lab partner, Miles. Towards friendship, love, independence, and life.
