Dear Emmie Blue: A Novel
Emmie Blue has a problem. She’s in love with her best friend, who has just asked her to be his “Best Woman” at his wedding.
Emmie Blue has spent her life feeling second rate. Her mom is rarely home and wants nothing to do with her. She’s never met her dad. Her friends at school turned against her. In a moment of deep loneliness, she puts her email address in a red balloon and releases it hoping a future friend will respond.
Lucas’s family has recently uprooted his life from England to France and he is desperately homesick for his homeland. One day he finds a red balloon that managed to float across the ocean. Inside he finds an email address. The rest is history. After a series of letters and emails, Lucas and Emmie meet in person and soon they are inseparable. Emmie becomes part of the family, a family like she’s always dreamed of.
But now with Lucas preoccupied with his wedding, Emmie finds herself spending more time with Eliot, Lucas’s older half-brother. The three used to be close but on her nineteenth birthday, Eliot told everyone her most private secret. Still, she finds herself rekindling their relationship.
Emmie is so fixated on her feelings for Lucas that she loses track of herself. She stops looking for a job, gives up on finding her father, and is putting all her friendships on the backburner. And just as she is about to get what she wants; she realizes maybe she wants something else.
