This book really made my day! I love Emily, she's funny, witty, but has a golden heart.
I thought at first she was so shallow and only had fluttering butterflies inside her brain, but then she continued to be the best friend I've always secretly wanted to have.
My favorite part is when she told Aunt Tim how Holly might be making a terrible mistake by dating Ruaraidh.
She insisted on telling her best mate that she's running on a slippery slope, but then eventually let her friend live her own life.

I enjoyed this book mostly for the humor. There were many times that Emily annoyed the living daylights out of me, but I think that is because of her teenager ways. I would love to say that her boy craziness is exaggerated, but it's really not and the shenanigans she gets into because of it are pretty funny. It's been a while since I read the first one in this series but I do feel like Emily had more character growth in this book. I really liked how she realized that she wasn't actually crushing ...more

Yup, still very much liking these books. Emily just gets herself in super funny situations. I laughed so hard during the whole spray painting sheep bit. And the two-headed hedgehog? Oh my Crod! Of course she's completely blind that Fang is the right guy for her, but there are still several books left (and supposedly new ones will come out) so I have hope that she'll figure it out eventually.

I bought this at my library book sale only because of the title. I didn't realize that it was a YA book. I gave it 3 stars because parts of it were really funny, but overall it was probably only 2 stars for me.
The book is written as a series of emails written by Emily to friends while she is at her aunt's sheep farm in Scotland doing a work study. Her bungled attempts to help with the sheep chores (especially the sheep graffiti) and to impress the farm hand Rauriadh were amusing. I thought Emily

Cute idea but I felt like the author was trying too hard with the teen lingo. It was excessive and exhausting so I just couldn't get into it.

Emily and Holly are in Scotland on a sheep farm for their month long woark experience. Now Emily must survive wild sheep attacks, and old torture devices from castle dungeons. She must stay uber coolio, though, if she is to win a contest with Holly to see who will snog Ruaraidh. Scottish god of love, first. Her orange skin may not help, though.

A fun, quick read. I picked this up at a garage sale because the title and cover illustration caught my eye.

I found the main character, Emily, unlikable and annoying, but it was still entertaining. It was also delightful to find a modern epistolary novel, told in emails. Nice twist on a very old style.
