Destiny Rewritten, by Kathryn Fitzmaurice

Destiny RewrittenSummary:  Eleven-year-old Emily has a secret career ambition that she suspects her English-professor mother will frown on. Then, just after discovering that it contains an important family secret, she loses the special volume of Emily Dickinson’s poetry that was given to her at birth. As Emily and her friends search for the lost book in used bookstores and thrift shops all across town, Emily’s understanding of destiny begins to unravel and then rewrite itself in a marvelous new way.

  1. I didn’t expect this book to be what is was, it surprised me. I really liked that Emily wasn’t totally dramatizing losing her Emily Dickinson book. You could kind of predict what would happen in the end, but I still wondered how she was going to figure everything out. This book may be a candidate for the Newbery.

  2. Emily was very likeable, always searching for answers.The book itself was great, and I think it’s good for any age. The book didn’t strike anything inside of me, but it might possibly be a Newbery candidate.
