Descripción

In this charming and poignant novel, 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; now, fourteen years later, the one thing Emmie has been counting on is gone for good, and everything she planned is up in the air.

At sixteen, 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 addressed, sparking an intense friendship between the two teens.

Now, fourteen 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 from her job. 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?

Emmie Blue is about to learn everything she thinks she knows about life (and love) is just that: what she thinks she knows. Is there such thing as meant to be? Or is it true when they say that life is what happens when you are busy making other plans? A story filled with heart and humor, Dear Emmie Blue is perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine and Evvie Drake Starts Over.

  • (5/5)
    I first heard about this book early this year on one of those Top Books to look forward to in 2020 lists (sadly, I cannot remember the source, else I’d look up what else they nominated in the same write up). The story of a 16yr old girl who sends a balloon across the English Channel with her deepest, darkest secret, only to be found by chance by a 16yr old (English) boy in France with whom she forms a lifelong friendship - and with whom she later falls headfirst into love - captivated me from the start. Of the many wonderful books I’ve wanted to read this year, this was one of my most anticipated — and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT! I listened to the audiobook version. Perhaps it was the excellent narration by a young English woman who conveyed the plaintive, underconfident, funny, and kind persona of Emmie Blue perfectly through her words that made me love the book so much. Is this a summer beach read romance? Unabashedly, yes. Is there a love story that tugs at your heartstrings? Again yes, but not the one you might expect. Does Emmie’s deep, dark secret make you want to curl up and cry for her? Repeatedly. Will you fall in love with the characters - the non-evil ones, anyway - and race through the book to continue their story arc? I most certainly did. I realize from the few 5-star fiction reads I’ve rated in 2020, the one constant they share is superb character development and an author who has the gift of making me as a reader truly CARE about and fall in love with the characters. If you know you don’t like romance or “sad, sappy novels” where you pray for a happy ending, you might want to skip this one even though the writing is hilarious and the characters wonderfully written. But for everyone else, I challenge you not to fall in love with Emmie and the good people in her life (fortunately, she surrounds herself with many quality people). It’s a wonderful escape for the summer.
