Emily the Strange is back in her second novel, STRANGER AND STRANGER. The last mystery has been solved and now her, her mom, and her awesome cats are off to another oddly-titled city. Once there though, Emily finds a way to duplicate herself and now has an OtherMe to deal with. Things seem great at first: the two of them work on a Master Prank, turning everyone in the town strange; Emily finds a secret sewer to design a mural on (though she keeps this to herself); and each generally enjoys having a copy of the other. However, things get bad when OtherMe believes she is the real Emily and turns into EvilOne. Can Emily stop things before her cats abandon her forever and she's stuck with all the blame? And just who exactly is her strange neighbor, Venus Fang Fang? More than she seems, of course! Emily the Strange is not for everyone. The story isn't realistic in any way, but that's what makes half the fun. She's a strange little girl who loves cats, drawing, and being scientific. She hates company though, so having a double is bound to get annoying for her no matter what...if only that double wasn't a complete evil being. I had a hard time getting through this book in places. I feel the first book flowed a lot faster, while this one seemed a bit more on the "Oh gosh, get on with it!" side. If people are fans of Emily, they are bound to love it. If you're not, or not yet, then obviously you should stick with the first book first and see what you think of the style. I do love that the EMILY THE STRANGE books include fun drawings on basically every page and that it's told in a diary format. Those make it fun to read even during the boring bits.

Ahoy there me mateys! This here be a combined review of the second and third books of the Emily the Strange series. While I try to post no spoilers, if ye haven’t read book one and ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril . . . Okay so back when I read book one I stated that “Emily is totally a kindred spirit for me and I am so glad I found her. I wish I would have found her sooner. This book is so funny and awesome. I knew it was for me just based on the cover.” Further reading only solidifies the point that Emily and I would be good friends if we both didn’t hate other people so much. Book one was awesome and I loved the audiobook. Sadly I was not able to listen to these in audiobook format but I still loved them. While book one remains me favourite, book two was excellent because Emily accidentally duplicates herself. At first Emily thinks that having two of herself is great but slowly begins to question that belief. But how does she get rid of “OtherMe?” This book continues with the 13-bullet-point-lists, made up curse words, pranks, fabulous diary entries, and absolutely marvelous cats! Even though much of the plot was predictable, I just didn’t care. It made me happy. I love Emily’s change of heart concerning OtherMe and how mom handles the whole situation. Book three was the weakest of the books so far but was silly fun nonetheless. In this one Emily is homeschooled by her mom. It involves time travel, meeting Emily’s ancestors, and epidemics, among other things. I love how Emily’s classes work out. I love Emily’s artwork. I enjoyed Emily’s shenanigans in the 1780s but too much of this book was Emily (and gang) waiting for things to happen. I wanted more of Emily taking charge. This book did, however, set up the last book in the series. I do need to know what happens next! If ye haven’t met Emily and enjoy strange, quirky, and snarky characters then give this series a shot!

Okay, first thing's first, reviewers. Learn to use periods! Sheesh! But really, this book is fantastic, and just as good as the first one, in my opinon. The plot is still great, the character development is still stellar, and Emily is still...strage! I think anyone 13+ (Heh, see what I did there?) Should read it. If you liked the first one, you should definatly buy this.
