Résumé de l'éditeur: «Emily Starr was born with the desire to write. As an orphan living on New Moon Farm, writing helped her face the difficult, lonely times. But now all her friends are going away to high school in nearby Shrewsbury, and her old-fashioned, tyrannical aunt Elizabeth will only let her go if she promises to stop writng! All the same, this is the first step in Emily's climb to success. Once in town, Emily's activities set the Shrewsbury gossips buzzing. But Emily and her friends are confident -- Ilse's a born actress, Teddy's set to be a great artist, and roguish Perry has the makings of a brilliant lawyer. When Emily has her poems published and writes for the town newspaper, success seems to be on its way -- and with it the first whispers of romance. Then Emily is offered a fabulous opportunity, and she must decide if she wants to change her life forever.»
Personnages toujours aussi craquants de vie!... Ce deuxième tome est un brin plus contemplatif que le premier, la majeure partie de la narration étant supportée par la lecture du journal d'Emily. Toutefois, la magie opère encore et s'installent tranquillement les bases de sa vie de jeune adulte. On ne peut s'empêcher de le lire avidement, pour savoir ce qui arrive à cette bande d'amis aux mille possibles.
