Another Day As Emily
with illustrations by Joanne Lew-Vriethoff
from Random House...
Suzy just can't win. Her brother is a local hero for calling 911 after
seeing their elderly neighbor collapse, and only her best friend was able
to win a role in the play they both auditioned for. Feeling cast aside
from all angles, Suzy sees a kindred spirit in Emily Dickinson, the
subject of her summer project. Suzy decides to escape from her
disappointments by emulating the poet's life of solitude: no visitors or
phone calls (only letters delivered through her window), no friends
(except her goldfish, Ottilie), and no outings (except church, but only if
she can wear her long white Emily dress).
