THE VERY REAL WORLD OF EMILY ADAMS by Samantha J. Rose

“Be a rebel. In a world of darkness, become light.”

Emily Adams has lost everything. Injured from a fight with her now officially-ex-boyfriend, she’s fled to an unfamiliar city with nothing but the change in her pocket and a broken relationship with her father. As hope slips away, she seeks to put a permanent end to her pain…

Until an enchanting encounter with a magic man in a dress changes everything.

Given a new chance at life, Emily embarks on a journey with her new BFF, a mysterious clairvoyant, and a band of musicians to stop the monsters that threaten the world. And she may uncover something even more impossible-if she can let go of the past and believe in herself enough to embrace it.

Comments: I have a like/dislike relationship with this story. the complexity of Emily, her reactions, shyness, trauma all were well done (though quite wordy.) The ramblings of her inner thoughts were complex and real but too prevalent for my taste. It slowed the action down. The info dumps were huge and also slowed the action down. there were beautiful and hilarious moments in the inner thoughts though. and LOL humor in the dialogue. the narration was half brilliant half super annoying. first, every male character sounds gay so much so that they blend together so you don't know who's talking. second, the narrator was far too chipper sounding as she described all of Emily's depressing thoughts. it did not jive. however there were moments of perfect delivery and all the stumbly, stuttery moments were so well done and natural feeling.
