Emily's back, so be ready for laughs. When most girls take a work experience class, they get an office job or clerk somewhere. Emily and her best English friend, Holly, are different. They are going to work on a sheep farm owned by Emily's Aunt Tim for a month. Right off the bat, Emily knows things are going to be interesting, when her uncle is somewhat like Sean Connery, and the farm hand, Ruaraidh (Rory), is a total Schottie, or Scottish hottie. The only thing is, Holly wants him as much as she does. Over the course of a month, Emily faithfully emails her best friend friend, Dru in the States, about her competition with Holly and the adventures they run into as they rack up points in the love games. From drenching sheep to rescuing two headed oddities, the two find they are getting more experiences than they planned on at the start.
**** Readers both young and slightly more than young will get a laugh out of this book. Emily is frank and refreshing as she keeps us up to date on her family's antics. Also, American readers will enjoy learning more of the foreign language known as British and Gaelic. **** Amanda Killgore
