Hello, my name is Emily
by Joy Lynn Goddard

For a smart girl, Emily is planning to do something really stupid . . .

She's mad at her mother. So what else is new? As a typical teenager, Emily wants a life, but her mother wants to ruin everything! She even treats the family dog better than she does Emily. Besides, she's not even her real mother - Emily and Taylor, her brother, were adopted.

As Emily begins the search for her birth mother, she reaches a dead end, but then a man sends her an email that changes her life. She wants to meet him secretly. Her friend Alex warns her not to go because he thinks that cyberspace is full of creeps. But Emily doesn't listen to him and heads into serious trouble.

Frantic, Alex tries his best to save her. Will he be too late?

Hi Ms. Goddard,

My mom went to a conference and came home with a present for me. When she said it was a book, i wasn’t very happy. i don’t like reading much and don’t like it when everybody is always telling me to read. But i was surprised !!! I LUV your book Hello, my name is Emily. Emily is kinda like me. She has to look after her little brother and my mom is always asking me to look after my little sister because we can’t afford a babysitter. My sister is okay but most of the time i’d rather be out with my friends. My mom is also overprotective like Emily’s mom and i don’t like it! Me and my friend Caitlyn were going to meet some older guys once but mom found out and wouldn’t let me go. I was mad but then found out later that the guys were losers. Can you tell me something? Do Sean and Lizzie break up again?

Brittany, 15
