Emily D. and Me

Lucinda Smith


Ada Oates is fifteen years old. She’s stuck in Suburbia with the memory of her deceased mother, a father who’s dating, and a grandmother who’s obsessed with faux french and facelifts. Ada not only dreams of a better name but also of a loftier life; the life of an idealized writer from the past. Enter Emily Dickinson, a frustrated fashionista and mischievous muse. Bored with her infamous long white dess, Emily D. invades Ada’s closet and also her world. When Emily starts texting about everything including Ada’s boyfriend Jack, Ada wonders if having her own BFF superstar poet is all it’s cracked up to be. Written with humor, a sprinkling of poetry and surprise literary cameo appearances, Emily D. and Me reflects on the challenges, the joys, and the commitment of a writer’s life.
