Product description

Product Description

Get New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller Katie MacAlister's three hysterically funny young adult books in one handy volume.



Together for the first time in one volume are the previously published first three entries in the Emily Series: THE YEAR MY LIFE WENT DOWN THE LOO, THEY WEAR WHAT UNDER THEIR KILTS? and WHAT'S FRENCH FOR "EW!"?

THE YEAR MY LIFE WENT DOWN THE LOO
When sixteen-year-old Emily’s family uproots her from Seattle to England right before her junior year, she has to adjust to a whole new lingo, new friends, and a serious lack of malls. Luckily, hunkalicious British boys do exist!

THEY WEAR WHAT UNDER THEIR KILTS?
Emily spends her month of work experience on a Scottish sheep farm, complete with wild sheep, her best friend Holly , and Ruaraidh the shepherd, AKA the Scottish God of Love who just happens to have eleven fingers. Kilt-watching, disastrous castle tours, graffiti spray-painted sheep, and tanning lotions gone horribly awry—it’s just another month in the life of Emily.

WHAT'S FRENCH FOR "EW!"?
Spring break arrives, and Emily is in Paris to learn French. With her trusty friend Holly at her side, an anti-pregnancy doll named Jack, and snogariffic boyfriend Devon arriving for a visit, Emily's habit of getting into the most hilarious situations ever results in her storming more than just the Bastille. Will Paris survive her visit?

"Gripping, smart-alecky, shocking...and at the same time, tender. A brilliant debut by Katie Maxwell in the Young Adult Forum." - KLIATT

"Fans of The Princess Diaries and other well written teen books will cheer this new entry to the scene." - Huntress Reviews

"Girls will laugh, sigh and squeal aloud as they embark upon Emily's journey." - Romantic Times BOOKClub

Having read most of Katies adult books and loving them I had not got around to reading her Emily books as yet, until recently. I really don't know why I waited so long. Emily is a fun character, and this is a humerous look into a teenage girls life, where everything is a drama, and she has, in true Katie style, a talent for getting into the most hilarious trouble. Highly recommend it, especially for young adults, but we older readers can enjoy it too. I am looking forward to reading the last two books in the series, and see Emily figure out who Mr Right is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotta Love Emily!! 31 August 2016
By Mommacar - Published on Amazon.com

I really enjoyed these three novellas by Katie Macalister. The Year My Life Went Down The Loo covers the period during which 16 year old Emily and her parents are off to Englsnd for a year. As to any 16 year old girl this equates horrors- new school, new friends, etc. quite entertaining for a YA to an adult to enjoy reading. Quite funny. Next up is They Wear What Under Their Kilts-continues Emily's school year adventures as she's off to Scotland for her month long "work experience" required by school. This covers her misadventures and boy craziness in Scotland now under her Aunt and Uncles watch. Truly worth the read. It took me back to my teen years in an instant. So, so funny. Shows you the naive, cute awkward, sophisticated funny sides of a teen. Next up is What's French For "Ew?"- Emily's school year misadventures continue on in Paris with her friend Holly from school who was in both other novellas. She's in France for two week intense classes in French to try to catch up with her class. As usual Emily gets up to all kinds of misadventures and boy trouble with her hotties craze. Gotta love a 16 year old and hormones and no idea what to do about them! Lol!! Katie Mac is just the best at channeling teen craziness and love and lust and trouble. So much humor!! Pick up your copy quick to get to next installments!!

I really enjoyed these three novellas by Katie Macalister. The Year My Life Went Down The Loo covers the period during which Emily is a 16-year-old Seattle teen, whose life is literally turned upside down when her family moves to England. Emily tells us her story in email form as she writes to her friend Dru back in the States. Makeup, boys, Liam Hemsworth and trying to fit into a new school obsess Emily. Oh and did I mention she calls her father Brother which is strange but fits. There are kilts and an older sister named Bess who is interesting in her on way and a haunted underwear drawer. Quite funny.

Next up is They Wear What Under Their Kilts-continues Emily's school year adventures as she's off to Scotland for her month long "work experience" required by school. Brother and her mother take her to Scotland where she will be under her Aunt and Uncle’s watch. This covers her misadventures and boy craziness in Scotland with her new friend Holly. A hottie web site page is developed which I would love to click on……This shows you the naive, cute awkward, sophisticated funny sides of a teen.

Next up is What's French For "Ew?"- Emily's school year misadventures continue on in Paris with her friend Holly from school in England. She is in France for a two-week intense class in French to try to catch up with her class. As usual Emily gets into all kinds of misadventures and boy trouble with her hotties craze. There are the scenes with the LuvMyBaby doll that are so funny.

Another great read from Katie. Well worth the time to read it brings back a lot of awkward teen-age angst in a humorous way.

I first read the Emily Series as a teen. It was my first foray into Katie MacAlister books, though I didn't discover this until later. I have always had a fascination with England, some may even call me an anglophile, so when I picked up the book this first time and found it was about a girl like me, who had to move to England I had to read it.

The writing is very much like that of a teenager which adds to the authenticity of the writing. It is in email form which adds to the telling as well. It's a great book for all ages but is a testament to teenage thought and feelings. This unique point of view will resonate with teens and take those of us past that back to those thoughts and feelings.

The new version had updates that will delight those who are technically inclined and won't confuse those who are not. It's a great update and I hope this book will empower, enlighten, and entertain many new and returning readers.

It took a little bit for me to get into the book. The writing style of emails back and forth between teenagers was new to me but it really gives you a special insight into the actual mindset of Emily. There were characters you didn't like, Adam, and others you rooted for, Fang and Devon. I did enjoy reading about Emily though!!

This was a great set of books! Easy reads that are full of humor and adventure; great for adults and teens both! I loved the wit and sass of Emily as she figures out life and high school in England. I couldn't put it down until I had read the whole story! Enjoy!!
