    Kami Garcia the NY Times bestselling author has uoted about teenagers as “Teenagers Everything is so apocalyptic” Kate Scott the American author who once enchanted us with her debut book Counting to D has once again left us mesmerized by yet another YA tale called The Evolution of Emily They say high school is one of the most bizarre periods of a person's life and getting and coming through it is one of the biggest challenges in life Likewise Kate's protagonist Emily is one of teenager who is going through the most bizarre periods of her life and Emily's decisions and life altering changes will not only make you like her but will also enlighten you in a waySynopsis Emily Charles knows how to run away Away from her overprotective agoraphobic mother Away from her biology obsessed autistic sister Away from her uiet sheltered claustrophobic homeschooled life When Emily's escape plan involves starting her junior year at Kennedy High School she realizes she's no longer running away Now she's running towards Towards her uiet thoughtful cross country teammate August Towards her zany enthusiastic lab partner Miles Towards friendship love independence and lifeThanks to her sister's special interest in biology Emily knows all about the birds and the bees Boys are a lot confusing Kate Scott has done it again by creating yet another skillfully crafted teenage story She has one time take us into those familiar halls and corridors of Kennedy High School And this time a teenager is on run Emily is a socially awkward girl and has been home schooling along with her autistic sister all her life Not only that Emily’s mother is very overprotective of her daughters filling them up with the horrific tales of high schools from bitchy cheerleaders to mean guys But Emily has to run run away from the very comfort of her house run away from their mentally challenged biology obsessed sister run away from the sad walls of her home And that's the best decision that Emily took in her 16years of life Kennedy High School is her new family a whole new bright shimmering full of promises world but is it so easy for a socially awkward girl like Emily to connect with her peers? The author has stressed on the fact that being strong on certain subjects can help you win friends so in way Kate has urged that teenagers maybe wrecking everything around them but still they need to focus on their study to dwell in their life especially tackle high school and I loved how Kate used biology as the bridge between Emily's awkwardness and shyness to make her popular among her peers This book deals with number of teenage issues like homosexuality learning to take mature decisions tackling with every day issues learning to see the world in a whole new perspective etc And Emily was the medium to show us all how the teenagers of these days cope with burgeoning issues of their life family and the world But that doesn't mean that everyone is crashing out because of issues some teenagers like Emily can come out of the fall and still stand strongly on her feet And that was the message that the author tried to give it to her readersWhat can I say about her story telling and narrative style and prose; all were perfect just like the last time She knows how to write a story smartly by making it so realistic And with skillfully crafted characters the book was a completely joyenlightening ride for me I think The Evolution of Emily Kate's best written book This book is a complete eye opener for parents as well as teenagersVerdict A must read book for all the parents to learn that teenagers' world is indeed not an easy place for them to survive without a scar and I bet YA lovers can't miss out this book Courtesy I'm very grateful to the author Kate Scott for providing me with a copy of her book in return for an honest and unbiased review

    I shouldn't look at other reviews on a book before writing my own because they make me doubt myself For me this is a 5 star book a book that I was engaged in kept reading past my allotted reading time thought about between reading sessions thought about after I'd finished the book and will happily recommend to others My only regret that gave me any pause at all was my feeling that the ending was a bit rushed But all the right stuff was there so I'm willing to forgive itOkay so on to what I thought I knew very little about the book when I first started reading so it was a pleasant surprise to discover that Sam the main character in Scott's first book Counting to D played a part I loved getting just a bit of an update on Sam's life and how she was doing beyond the ending of her story So that was a really nice treatI enjoyed Emily's journey and how running was a theme used to show Emily's growthAs in her first book I loved Scott's easy use of smart stuff which is so often absent from YA books In this story Emily isn't the smartest one though she's no slouch but biology and chemistry are used to connect with her autistic sister a way to bridge the gap between this socially awkward girl and the world around her This story deals with mental health lifestyle choices homosexuality stereotyping You'd think a book with all of that in it would be heavy handed but it totally isn't It was light and easy and yet managed to touch on these issues and with a kind of depth that seems improbable Kate Scott has a deft hand at addressing many of the issues facing teens today doing it in such a way that feels easy and real She writes like a friend someone you could trust your secrets with someone you could trust your heart with Yep I don't regret my 5 stars The Evolution of Emily is excellent If you're a human and like contemporary YA fiction you should read it

    I was hoping for a ‘smart’ story with a character that despite the issues in their life was moving forward growing and learning Not having read Scott’s earlier book I was unfamiliar with her style and storytelling and was surprisingly pleased with this gem of a book Emily is ostensibly a typical teen girl who has a series of issues that are becoming common in today’s society an autistic sister an agoraphobic mother and having to learn the social coping mechanisms that are so unfamiliar since she was in a homeschool environment If the social awkwardness isn’t enough – it’s a new school with new people and everything feels new and different Except her running – the one thing that keeps her grounded And Emily is a runner first away from the cloistered and confining boundaries of home and to new options opportunities and a perspective on life Full of smartly inserted insets that use biology and chemistry to make points and add depth Scott has developed a wonderful character in Emily giving her depth and showing her growth as she learns to navigate the world outside her home and developing new ways to relate and navigate the difficulties at home The careful portrayal of her mother and sister add heart and a sense of honesty to both the emotional toll and the frustrations from all sides Learning and dealing with the social scene at school is wonderfully detailed and gives an opportunity for the author to add in some fairly deep issues that are handled with care neither becoming heavy handed and preachy nor passing them off as unimportant From mental health to lifestyle choices homosexuality and stereotyping Scott touches on each issue with care giving readers the opportunity to learn and understand while leaving them without judgment from the story of the ‘right or wrong’ Readers can learn empathize experience and start to understand the depth and difficulties in someone else’s life that may not be instantly apparent and come out the richer for it My first opportunity to read this author and it is a story that I can’t recommend highly enough While I did feel that there was a race to the end to wrap up several hanging threads for the most part the text and pacing gave the characters plenty of time to develop and grow with nice insets of friendship learning and humor I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility

    This was loooong overdue and in my defense um i have nothing to say to defend myself except um sopho year of uni was really hard and so was fencing i suckOk so I did part of the review on December 6th and here it isI kinda screamed when it ended More like a caw of “whaaaaat I’m done??”Dang I read it on my mac started in school before the pharmacy lecture and continued all the way in the train ride home where it ended so that was a fast read But hey I miss having that funny feeling in your tummy when you read something so utterly poignantBeen reading a lot of romance novels so it was nice to feel something while reading hahHaving read the first book I was expecting some sort of secret to pop out idk why I’m saying this I don’t even remember if there was a secret in the first book I think there wasn’tBut hey I like blake I want to hear his songs Not that familiar with autistic themes but the ones brought up in the book are not really something totally new but I did learn a few new thingsThe mother is interesting and I could see how her actions would make sense And having the father to help mediate is good so was the psychiatrist And so is Emily The way that Emily belongs in this dysfunctional family is interesting; she's as much a part of it as she is apart of itTristan and Miles are likeable characters So was Sophie I appreciated the effort in trying to break down typical american high school stereotypes but why is it even needed in the first place? Like I don't get the mention of the hierarchy again and again in YA booksSo my epiphany then was the whole DO goodwholesomeperfect families exist?I’ve been wondering about that ever since I read a book about a seemingly perfect family forgot the title and the conversations I’ve had about this goes almost as circular as the ones I’ve had on true knowledge is what we know even concrete? which is beside the point Basically I really really really enjoyed reading the bookMaybe that's why it felt like it ended too fast or maybe it was the ending I REALLY WANTED TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN OLIVIA CAME IN I WAS SO ANGRY WHEN IT JUST ENDEDBroke my heart it didEven her first day would have been a sweet treatSigh

    Sixteen year old Emily starts the story with a monumental step; she jogs right into the nearest high school and asks for an application form behind her mother's back It's clear from beginning on that her family is not exactly ordinary her mother has major social phobia issues really she's certifiable and Emily's younger sister Olivia is autistic But this isn't the story of how Emily gains courage to break free of her isolated home schooled life This story covers the next step what ripples her actions create and how she deals with them This is a heart warming enjoyable story Emily's act of bravery immediately demands sympathy and her loving personality doesn't let the reader go She forces herself to embrace a new life but at the same time is unsure how to really pull it through When things seem too much she runs Literally This sudden somewhat insane reaction gave a great twist to her otherwise pretty level headed personality It makes her realistic After all who could lead such an insanely isolated life and come out completely 'normal'? The school scenes are well done making it easy to get lost in Emily's world The dialogue is realistic and the other characters are likable There's a sweet romance and a lot of confusion perfect for this age group Probably one of the most driving things about this story is the weaving in of people with different outlooks on life andor challenges Not only are Emily's mother and sister portrayed with different challenges but the people Emily meets at school don't fit in the normal perfect high school image Although I found this array of characters almost too colorful the author manages to weave them together so that it never really feels like it goes over board Obviously there's a lot of issues with acceptance fitting in and learning to embrace ones self In other words great themes for teens Summed up this is an enjoyable read I can especially recommend it to teenage girls who like real life stories about high school with a nice dab of boys and first love thrown in I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

    The Evolution of Emily has a protagonist who has a lot on her plate—an overprotective mother who believes in homeschooling an autistic sister and a world of friends and cute boys at her new school I liked the metaphor of her as a runner not just in exercising but as a person running towards independence and a new life This is the type of writing that feels light but has deep issues Emily is a character to root for and I enjoyed being in her world for a few hours

    Just within the first chapter I'm already loving Emily and her want for I can tell she's a brave lady It feels good to read about a uiet main character There isn't many of them in YA fiction Her writing style is reflected I felt as though that Olivia was the main character as well And how could I forget Sam from the first book? It was great to be able to catch up with her on her life after the book

    Kate Scott is back at Kennedy High with characters for you to fall in love with and many familiar ones from her debut COUNTING TO D I liked this book even better than the first and found Emily's struggle incredibly relatable Kate's use of Emily's love for running as a metaphor for her tendency for running away from difficulties weaves through the book and pulls it together into a book that is fun to read yet also tackles some deep issues
