The second in the Emily series—heart-rending, magical, and completely unforgettable
Emily never imagined Aunt Elizabeth would allow her to go to high school in Shrewsbury, and she's thrilled, especially as her close friends Ilse, Teddy, and Perry will be there. But there are certain conditions: for the whole three years Emily must board with hateful Aunt Ruth, and she must promise to stop writing stories. To Emily, this is unthinkable, but she wants an education, and reluctantly agrees. With the move from her beloved home at New Moon to Aunt Ruth's house, Emily's world is turned upside down. Not only must she prove herself at school, despite rejection and jealousy, but she can no longer count on her friends. Her happy childhood friendships—especially with Teddy and Perry—start to turn into something more complicated, and in a small-town, the merest hint of gossip can cause scandal.
About the Author
L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942) was a prolific writer who published many short stories, poems, and novels, many of which were inspired by the years she spent on the beautiful Prince Edward Island. Anne of Green Gables and its sequels have always been among the most popular of children's classics, yet Emily was the author's own favorite character.
