Blurb A delightful story about how the things we imagine to be best for us usually aren’t. The reason you will love Dear Emmie Blue is because you’ve probably *lived* Dear Emmie Blue, in some small part of your own journey to adulthood.” —Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author
In this charming and poignant novel, teenager Emmie Blue releases a balloon with her email address and a big secret into the sky, only to fall head-over-heels for the boy who finds it; now, fourteen years later, the one thing Emmie has been counting on is gone for good, and everything she planned is up in the air.
At sixteen, Emmie Blue stood in the fields of her school and released a red balloon into the sky. Attached was her name, her email address…and a secret she desperately wanted to be free of. Weeks later, on a beach in France, Lucas Moreau discovered the balloon and immediately emailed the attached addressed, sparking an intense friendship between the two teens.
Now, fourteen years later, Emmie is hiding the fact that she’s desperately in love with Lucas. She has pinned all her hopes on him and waits patiently for him to finally admit that she’s the one for him. So dedicated to her love for Lucas, Emmie has all but neglected her life outside of this relationship—she’s given up the search for her absentee father, no longer tries to build bridges with her distant mother, and lives as a lodger to an old lady she barely knows after being laid off from her job. And when Lucas tells Emmie he has a big question to ask her, she’s convinced this is the moment he’ll reveal his feelings for her. But nothing in life ever quite goes as planned, does it?
Emmie Blue is about to learn everything she thinks she knows about life (and love) is just that: what she thinks she knows. Is there such thing as meant to be? Or is it true when they say that life is what happens when you are busy making other plans? A story filled with heart and humor, Dear Emmie Blue is perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and Evvie Drake Starts Over. (From Goodreads)
If you like Friendship Romance a plot twist mixtapes comedy then this books is for you
Trigger warning this book does ft sexual assault.
This was such a joy to read I love Emmie so much I could relate to her so much as a 30 year old. This book is so much more then Romance at the heart its about friendship and family is not about blood. I loved emmie and Luke's friendship after Luke picks up Emmies balloon at 16 and a friendship is born. Emmie is shocked that Luke is getting married as she thought it be her and luke asks emmie to be best women I thought
Luke was great at the beginning but the Author tricked me into a false sense of security in making Eliot the bad guy as Emmie has a secret were her teacher sexually assaulted her wich is done subtly and well. And it all comes out. And we find out that Eliot is the one who secretly has loved Emmie, this book is full of soul and has funny moments.
Love Louise Emmies lodger I cried at the end
Everyone needs a best friend like Rose and Fox so funny at times Rosevis so funny you want to spit tea out with laughter
Ana is a bitch
The wedding was a bit of a let down as it was a big thing at the beginning of the book and it fell short
Solid 4 for me can not wait to read a complete version of this perfect beach read book
