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.

In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old--playing make-believe, dreading school, dreaming of faraway places. But even her imaginative mind can't shut out the realities of her impoverished North Carolina home or help her protect her younger sister, Emma.

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.

I'm a guy who spends most of my time reading copious amounts of non-fiction (I am studying for a PhD in New Testament in suburban Chicago), but I found myself drawn to this book on the "staff picks" shelf at our local library. Maybe it was the cover art, which is simple and beautiful in the hardback version. It was the beginning of the summer, and I was looking for escapist reading... so I gave it a shot.

This book was everything I needed and then some. Flock's writing style brought me, in my imagination, very believably to the south, to hillbilly/white-trash culture. Flock opts for the reader to see the world through the eyes of young Caroline, the protagonist. "Carrie's" poignant victimhood aches the reader, but not in an overwhelming way. Her innocence gives us hope that justice will prevail, that she will one day be free. Her little sister, Emma, we learn, is the personification of that freedom, a vulnerable but feisty companion with whom she shares her pain and discovery. No one should go through childhood alone. Unfortunately, many of us essentially do. Flock crafts Carrie as such a likable, relatable character, and the story as such a representative one for those who have struggled with emotional abuse (though the book never imposes or condescends), that by the end it is we who need Emma.

I have to admit that I was somewhat embarrassed at the emotions that this book reached down and pulled out of me. At the end, I wrote Elizabeth Flock and received the most gracious reply I could have imagined. A fitting cap to a sweet reading experience. Oh, and I also bought the book from Amazon as a keeper. It looks great on my shelf and is as good of a theology as many of the books alongside it.

Me and Emma is narrated by eight-year-old Carrie, who with her younger sister live a hardscrabble life in Toast, North Carolina. It is the story of abject poverty that was tolerable until the girls' father was murdered. Everything changes for the worst when their mother remarries Richard, a child molester and all-around abuser.

Because the book is so well written and the story so believable, I found myself having to take breaks from the life these girls endured. Elizabeth Flock depicted their living conditions so vividly that I often got a little queasy.

I loved Emma and Carrie. Despite the dire circumstances they were forced into, they tried to make the best of their situation. Ms. Flock tackled a difficult subject and did it well.
Tyler Is Not Here
Oh my gosh, what a great book!! I could have never predicted the ending! I found it hard to put down from the very beginning, and it captivated me until the very end. It is very well written. It definitely seems as if it is written from a child's perspective, and it captures the essence and innocence of childhood. I am very excited to read the next book. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Carrie Parker is like any other eight year old, or so it seems. She goes to school, dreams of faraway places, does everything a normal little eight year old girl does. But she can't pretend away the hardships of her life of poverty in North Carolina. As the big sister, Caroline is determined to protect her little sister Emma from a life of neglect and abuse from her drunken stepfather Richard, abuse which is also heaped on her Mother who doesn't seem to do anything about it. This book is all about one child's indomitable spirit and her incredible courage. I loved this book. There are parts of it that drag a little, but all in all you keep reading because you want to see what happens to Carrie and Emma. The end is shocking and unexpected, or, at least it was for me. A lot of reviewers said it was predictable and they saw it coming, but I didn't. All I can say is this book is haunting, and not soon forgotten. It is one that stays with you long after the final page is turned. I am now reading the sequel and eagerly await more from this author.
Molace
Me & Emma is an extraordinary book that instantly drew me in and wouldn't let go. The suffering of the girls at the hand of their stepfather was atrocious so I wasn't surprised by any part of the twist at the end. To avoid spoilers, I won't go into that but I know that you will be amazed, shocked but thoroughly glued to this book. I definitely want to read the next novel.

I read this book a little over a month ago and I'm still thinking about it today. I loved this book. The writing is exceptional and I found myself really caring about the main character. I read the sequel, "What happened to my sister" right after and loved that book too. It's heart wrenching at times, but a really good read. Couldn't put it down. I've already ordered another book by the same author because I like the writing style so much. Definitely recommend.

"Tell me what's going on honey--" her voice is practically begging me to cry. "You can talk to me."

I gulp and say, "Nothing's going on ma'am."

"I've half a mind to come on out and talk to your parents."

This book was my introduction to Elizabeth Flock and I must say that I was not in the least disappointed. Fast paced, the author brings us into the lives of the Parkers and their two daughters Carrie and Emma. After the death of their dad, the Parkers are forced to live up to he expectations of their mum's new husband and stepfather Richard, a drunkard and control freak.

The story told through the eyes of eight year old Carrie the older of teh two, was for me heart breaking and sorrowful at times, but through it all the children remained daring and courageous, and kept you guessing what could possibly be the outcome of this dysfunctional family. It is impossible to read this book without being touched, but you will be more so when the book ends and you are shocked out of your wits. And that shocked is with a capital S. Nothing is ever what it seems.

Highly recommended!!
