Gr 7-10-Emily the Strange, evil genius and skateboarder extraordinaire, has invented many things in her time-golems, working cat translators, great names for bands. But the duplication device may have been a mistake, especially when an accident produces an identical Emily. At first OtherMe is cool and useful, but it quickly becomes apparent that she is evil and will take over the world if not stopped. Emily's second journal, a sequel to The Lost Days (HarperCollins, 2009), is a dark delight, filled with all kinds of Strangeness: a broken leg, a Strange Manifesto that causes the entire town to go loony, an ex-spymaster neighbor, and an oddly understanding and absurdly patient mother, all described with demented wit and great relish, and accompanied by manga-style black-and-white cartoons. Does it all make sense? No, not really. Does it matter? Not at all. Fans of the first book and newcomers alike will thoroughly enjoy the zaniness and clamor for more.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Pure black gold."----ALA Booklist "A highly enjoyable read that will appeal to both readers new to the series and Emily fans alike."----School Library Journal "The book dresses up teen-identity issues in midnight-black humor and piles on so much persistent weirdness that oddball outsiders, goths in training, and other subversive types will find themselves positively smirking with glee."----ALA Booklist "[Emily's] sarcastic, nerdy individualism--with a hint of buried sweetness--will make readers want to spend more time with her."----Publishers Weekly A highly enjoyable read that will appeal to both readers new to the series and Emily fans alike. --School Library Journal" [Emily s] sarcastic, nerdy individualism with a hint of buried sweetness will make readers want to spend more time with her. --Publishers Weekly" There s no doubting the lighthearted but darkly hued creativity on display, nearly always sacrificing sense for strangeness.
