Cute. Good for those looking for early chapter books. I could not figure out, though, if the girl had Asperger's or not. I guess it didn't really matter but that's what I thought of throughout the entire book.

Kristen Oh, thank you for saying that, because I just started reading "Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell in Love" and all I can think of is "has a diagnosis been made that I'm not aware of?" I like the quirky main character and the vocabulary is terrific, but Emma-Jean comes off as almost robotic sometimes, and I wonder if kids would find her difficult to relate to, or disconcerting at times.
