Emily the Strange: 13 years old. Able to leap tall buildings, probably, if she felt like it. More likely to be napping with her four black cats; or cobbling together a particle accelerator out of lint, lentils, and safety pins; or rocking out on drums/ guitar/saxophone/zither; or painting a swirling feral sewer mural; or forcing someone to say "swirling feral sewer mural" 13 times fast . . . and pointing and laughing.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Antol | 2/19/2014

    " Fun easy read. It was the perfect choice for clearing my head a little. Loved the style and the Yosemite Sam swearing. I might try another one down the road "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelli | 2/18/2014

    " Loved the pictures and the quirky characters but the story just was going no where. Tried and tried to finish this book hoping that it had a decent ending but couldn't force myself through it when there are so many wonderful books waiting on my bookshelf. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/15/2014

    " This book, given to me as a birthday present, got me out of my reading slump and back on the road to find another good story like it. I enjoyed the mystery of Emily's past throughout the book; it was what kept me turning the pages. I also enjoyed the illustrations; there are not many books out there who can put color on the pages and still manage to have enough room to put an actual plot in their stories. Honestly, I've read this novel twice, and I still love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zana | 1/30/2014

    " I think it would be better if I had read the graphic novels first...a lot didn't make sense so it didn't hold my interest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 1/18/2014

    " What's not to love about a moody goth girl and many cats. Illustrations are such fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay Sanderson | 11/2/2012

    " There is just someting about this young, rebelious and hands down Strange girl that makes me feel good. Deffinetly a good book for someone looking to get away from drama, it is light and cheerfull even at the peak of hysteria of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bethany | 10/22/2012

    " Fun read! Loved the illustrations and the mystery :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scout | 5/16/2011

    " This book was hilarious but slightly confusing. It leaves you as clueless as the girl but explains things in the end. Was a great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aden | 4/14/2011

    " Great book loved it from beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 4/3/2011

    " Lovely. Snarky. Entertaining. Witty. Engaging. Complicated. Smart. Unique. Addicting. Endearing. Mysterious. Quizzical. Funny.

    Hopefully that list of 13 would make Emily proud. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 3/13/2011

    " Not quite what I was expecting because it is written in the format of a diary. I was mostly attracted to the front cover. That's why I picked it up. It was a fun quick read. I might read the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tanisha | 3/12/2011

    " Now why it's called Emily the strange. Its very weird. Kinda interesting but it got bored toward the end... :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 2/26/2011

    " 3.5/5 actually, but I enjoyed it so I'm arbitrarily rounding up.
    I really liked this book! Emily's a bit of a smart mouth, definitely unique. And why not, strange. No memory of anything, she wakes up one day and decides to call herself Earwig. Her whole point is to figure out who she is. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 2/7/2011

    " Emily the Strange was - in a word - strange. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 XxemocupcakeluvassultxX | 1/25/2011

    " omg freaking amazing book i loved it but i love all of the emily the strange books too. what ever it was still awsome! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheela | 1/22/2011

    " I was really excited to read this novel after reading a graphic novel of the same character. I enjoyed the fierceness that is Emily the Strange, but the story was a bit exhausting. The author definitely has imagination, but the narrative couldn't keep my attention until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhys | 1/18/2011

    " It was a different book and very strange with little drawings and doodles all over the pages. There are lots of 13 lists in it since she likes that number. The book had 266 pages including the three appendix. "
