"A brilliant teen diatribe on culture shock!"
It is a marvelous romp for teens, but everyone can have a
wonderful laugh at this culture rip-lash diatribe. It's a
quick read that will leave everyone howling.
Katie MacAlister - Queen of the first person proses - is
not content with taking historical and contemporary romance
by storm...she now takes on the trials and tribulations of
being a teen: a transplanted one at that. A modern, hip
Seattle 16 year old is uprooted and dropped into culture
shock - to the very foreign land of England. Done in the
manner of email rants, it is funny musing on the difference
in two cultures that share the same language, but somehow
seem to mangle it in their own special way.
There are more Emily rants to come, the next being WHAT DO
THEY WEAR UNDER THEIR KILTS in January 2004, so I look
forward to them.
This book is a breath of fresh air for teen reading.
