Emily Williams is not pleased about having to move to England for a year so her father can teach Medieval History to victims on the other side of the pond. It's not just that she is now a resident of Piddlington-on-the-weld instead of Seattle. The maroon and teal school uniform, the lack of malls and good coffee, and her haunted underwear drawer might also contribute to her dislike of her new (and temporary) home. But after meeting Aidan, Devon, and Fang-- the nummiest guys anywhere-- and Holly, the (second) coolest girl in a school of drab losers, things start looking up, and Emily just might survive the year. Emily will have you laughing (and cringing) at all of her escapades -- okay, mostly cringing. Still, the book will leave you wanting to read all the books about this tenacious character.
