    One thought on “Emily Upham's Revenge: A Massachusetts Adventure”

    1. Emily Upham’s Revenge is a lesser known work by the beloved author Avi. Read in one sitting, it a delightful read with easily accessible language and a sort of innocence about its characters.The main character, Emily Upham, is a well-brought-up young lady, 8-10 years of age, raised in a large home in Boston in 1875. Her father is nearly bankrupt and leaves his wife and daughter to go “get some money,” vowing not to come home without it. Emily’s mother becomes ill, unable to cope with her [...]

    2. An entertaining story of a little girl who was being sent to her uncle's place, because her parents went broke and couldn't provide Emily what she needed. The story is very good and I like how it is told. It's a book I wish that it is shown on-screen and animated (preferrably). The uncle was a greedy, lying businessman who didn't really like the little girl, but he was funny towards the end of this storySeth, the boy who Emily met along the way is a very interesting character so opposite to Emil [...]

    3. This novel is an ideal read for students ranging from third to eighth grade. Despite it’s seeming simplicity, it is full of adventure, mystery, suspense, and humor.The author exudes a sense of lighthearted fun, with unexpected plot twists that kept me turning the pages to the very end. The story follows the two main characters as they meet in a chance encounter. From that moment on, their journeys become intertwined, and they must set aside their differences to face a series of dangerous and o [...]

    4. See my note onThe True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle . This is a fun and hilarious book for younger readers. Although the title plays on that of a dime novel, and that form of literature has some part in the story, you don't have to have actually read any to get it.

    5. Emily must live with her uncle until her father gets some money. But before she meets her uncle at the train station, she meets Seth Marple who tells her the town is full of bandits and her uncle does not live there. She goes with Seth, who says he will help her get back to Boston.

    6. I was intrigued by the title of this book and enchanted by the illustrations. It is a cute tale for kids, but it was predictable and read like the illegitimate child of Mark Twain and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    7. Emily Upham is a prim and proper little girl whose path crosses a Tom Sawyer-like boy. Wonderful wackiness ensues. It's a good book.

    8. I tend to read the books my kids pick up from the library. This was a fun 1 1/2 hour read.So far, I haven't disliked any book written by this author.

    9. One of my favorite books from when I was young. Just re-read for a book club and enjoyed it just as much as the first time I read it if not more.

    10. I absolute adore Avi, but I found this book exceptionally stupid. I don't know why, but it just annoyed me. Maybe I don't like anything right now.
