Praise For Emily the Strange: Dark Times

“A highly enjoyable read that will appeal to both readers new to the series and Emily fans alike.”—
— School Library Journal

“There’s no doubting the lighthearted but darkly hued creativity on display. Pure black gold.”—
— ALA Booklist

“The book dresses up teen-identity issues in midnight-black humor and piles on so much persistent weirdness that oddball outsiders, goths in training, and other subversive types will find themselves positively smirking with glee.”—
— ALA Booklist

“[Emily’s] sarcastic, nerdy individualism—with a hint of buried sweetness—will make readers want to spend more time with her.”
