Emily’s Fortune by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is a book about a girl named Emily who is trying to get to a town called Redbud. The only reason why she even wants to go to Redbud is because both of her parents died and she doesn’t want to go with her Uncle Victor. The only time Emily met her uncle, he asked her mom for money and left. Emily travels with her turtle, Rufus. Along the way, Emily meets a boy named Jackson, who ends up coming along with Emily on their very exciting journey. One day, Emily and Jackson were walking along; they came across a piece of paper nailed to the wall. It said that Emily was worth ten million dollars!!! Read on to find out if Uncle Victor finally catches Emily. I would recommend this book to readers who like detailed action books. It’s also a RICBA nominee for 2012. You can find this book in the school library.
