Classic Review: Emily Climbs

Emily Climbs by L.M. Montgomery

Emily Climbs (Emily, #2)
by L.M. Montgomery
5 out of 5 stars
Rereading this for the tenth or twelfth time, I enjoy it just as much as ever!

Emily is growing up, honing her writing skills, and getting an education at Shrewsbury high school along with her friends, Ilse, Perry, and Teddy. She gets into innocent mischief, makes honest mistakes, and generally has little adventures around PEI.

I love the character development that Emily has in this book. There are some surprising developments with her family clan, the Murrays, as they begin to recognize that she’s no longer a little girl that they can bully.

I love all the weird and funny adventures that Emily has while she is hanging out with Ilse. Their friendship is so wild and true and beautiful. It’s a delight to read about two girls being such close friends, sharing secrets and dreams.

There is only one storyline in the book that I don’t like, and that is Dean Priest. He’s basically a pedophile, and he creeps me out.
