Dean saves her life, and he befriends her in the process. She writes whenever and wherever she can, and because of this I have always felt that Emily was rather similar to LMM herself and it was because of this that I loved Emily as a teenager when I spent rather more time than I should have writing truly terrible poetry.

Emily, also an orphan, is darker and more secretive. I've taken away half a star for the over-abundance of flowery poetry in the book, but otherwise this is a classic, enjoyable story whether you're eleven years old or, well, quite a bit older than that! I like Perry. A few weeks later, Emily makes another friend, Perry Miller. By the end of the book, she can look back at the letters she wrote when she arrived at New Moon, and recognise how juvenile and silly they are. I had forgotten a lot of the charm of the story. I read Emily of New Moon by L. Emily is a heroine with a love for the beauty in nature and art, loyalty to her friends, a thirst for knowledge, and a passionate dedication to her writing. Even though he is several years older than she, he sees a spark of maturity in her old-soul eyes that tugs at him in a deeper way than mere friendship. Jimmy recites poetry, Teddy lies on the ground sketching the scenes stretching out around them and Emily and Ilse dance in the grass. For if this story is about anything it is about Emily's first steps towards a career as a writer. Other unforgettable characters are Dean "Jarback" Priest, a quiet, mysterious cynic who wants something he fears is ever unattainable; fiery Mr Carpenter, the crusty old schoolteacher who is Emily's mentor and honest critic when it comes to evaluating her stories and poems; "simple" Cousin Jimmy, who recites his poetry when the spirit moves him; Aunt Laura, who is the kind aunt; and strict, suspicious Aunt Ruth who yet proves to be an unexpected ally in times of trouble.

Part of my geekiness has led to my being part of an email group called the Kindred Spirit Mailing List for the past seventeen years and there have been many, many discussions about the rightness and wrongness of Dean and Emily's relationship! Her mixture of vulnerability and daring boldness make her wonderfully endearing from the very first page. Starting school is another trial by fire, but she makes dear friends with a girl named Ilse, who has been allowed to run rather wild by her inattentive father, Teddy, a quiet classmate who draws exceptionally well but whose mother is somewhat disturbed, and Perry, who has never been to school but has sailed hither and yon with his father. Is spinsterhood a curse too? She soon realizes she loves God. She is proud, fiercely so, but also sensitive and unsure of herself. They have the most marvellous fights, with Ilse calling Emily dreadful names and Emily making Ilse even wilder by just smiling at her quietly!
