The Adoration of Emma Wylde

The Adoration of Emma Wylde - Kimberly  Russell The Adoration of Emma Wylde might trick you into thinking it's simply a light, fun read, but don't be fooled: this book packs quite a punch! Aside from the part that nearly made me cry, though, this book did have many sweet, funny moments as well. Emma's wonderfully sarcastic, but increasingly vulnerable voice really made the book for me. The settings of celebrity-focused Los Angeles and very-small-town Texas were both very well drawn, and the supporting characters were great. Jenny especially was a real hoot, and had some of the best lines in the book!
