Описание: The follow up to Elizabeth Flock& hugely successful debut novel & and Emma& this is a highly personal tale of what it& like to fall apart whilst the world watches. While breaking the news of Princess Diana& death to millions, reporter Isabel Murphy unravels on live television.
Me & Emma differentiates itself with a spectacular finish, shocking the reader and turning the entire story on its head. Sugarcoated it ain't, but instead of delivering profundity, Flock's tough love turns poor forsaken Carrie into a caricature. Through several twists and turns the reader learns that things are not quite the way our narrator led us to believe and everything crescendos in a way that (like all good thrillers) immediately makes you want to go back and read the whole book again from the start.

y, Mr. Wilson, I call ahead on my way up to his rickety house. It’s me, Carrie! But he ain’t nowhere to be seen. It’s annoying when she keeps on shoving her head under my hand to be pet. Go o. .But she won’t go. Mr. I holler up loud enough for my voice to carry through the screen door at the top of the steps but still nothing comes back. Brownie, git, I say, but she doesn’t mind me. Go ont. MoreLess Show More Show Less.
By turns achingly naïve and utterly pragmatic, Carrie has been shaped by the loss of her beloved daddy, and mired by a drunken stepfather and emotionally absent mother. Charting an astonishing course of survival for herself and Emma, she hopes to transform their life into one more closely resembling the storybooks she treasures.
But after the sisters' plan to run away from home unravels, their world takes a shocking turn-and one shattering moment ultimately reveals a truth that leaves everyone reeling.
Narrated with the simplicity and unabashed honesty of a child's perspective, Me & Emmais a vivid portrayal of heartbreaking loss of innocence, an indomitable spirit and incredible courage--a story that will resonate with readers of all ages and experiences.
