The Barnes & Noble Review

While living Britain, Emily's been given the chance to temporarily work on a sheep farm in Scotland's Highlands. Despite having scenery that's basically "mud, mud, a couple o

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 loved this book. i can't wait to read all the other books in this series. The first one was slightly my graphic than i had imagined but it was hilarious nonetheless. I loved following Emily and Holly through their adventures in Scotland and watching them swoon over Ruaraidh, the 11-fingered worker boy.

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.

This was complete drivel!!!!! It was extremely hard to swallow, only got to pge 26 and quit. This is teen fiction at its' worst.
I have read the first and third books in the series but I can't find the second anywhere!
Katie Maxwells books crack me up! She's a good quick pick for a teen (girl).
Just a book about Scottish people and kilts but it was good
This girl is really annoying.
