Publisher's Summary

In this charming and poignant novel that "oozes charm and wit and speaks beautifully about friendship and love, and the differences between the two" (Laura Pearson, author of I Wanted You to Know), teenager Emmie Blue releases a balloon with her email address and a big secret into the sky, only to fall head-over-heels for the boy who finds it. But 14 years later, everything Emmie has planned is up in the air.

At 16, Emmie Blue stood in the fields of her school and released a red balloon into the sky. Attached was her name, her email address...and a secret she desperately wanted to be free of. Weeks later, on a beach in France, Lucas Moreau discovered the balloon and immediately emailed the attached address, sparking an intense friendship between the two teens.

Now, 14 years later, Emmie is hiding the fact that she’s desperately in love with Lucas. She has pinned all her hopes on him and waits patiently for him to finally admit that she’s the one for him. So dedicated to her love for Lucas, Emmie has all but neglected her life outside of this relationship - she’s given up the search for her absentee father, no longer tries to build bridges with her distant mother, and lives as a lodger to an old lady she barely knows after being laid off. And when Lucas tells Emmie he has a big question to ask her, she’s convinced this is the moment he’ll reveal his feelings for her. But nothing in life ever quite goes as planned, does it?

Filled with heart and humor, Dear Emmie Blue "beautifully captures the heartache and frustrations of carrying our teenaged selves with us wherever we go" (Anstey Harris, author of Goodbye Paris) that is perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and Evvie Drake Starts Over.

5 Stars!!!

Loved the writing, loved the story, and loved the perfect ending. This book had a lot of "feels," but there was a heavy melancholy undertone for a large portion of the story that demanded a happy ending. Thankfully there was also a lot of witty banter and amazing friendships that helped lift the story out of it's somber moments. For readers who enjoy women's fiction with wit, strong friendships, and romance, Dear Emmie Blue is a stellar choice.

The audio was absolutely fabulous! Katy Sobey is a narrator I'll be seeking out in the future.

A sweet story

I enjoyed it. I remember my pen-pal and how enriching they were to ny life. I don't think people do that anymore, but it was nice to imagine it with a romantic twist.
