    Three teens embark on a dangerous journey and risk everything. For Emily, the fate of her friends - and her world - lies in her hands.
    Travel with Emily as she unlocks the secrets of her Celtic ancestors as she goes on a mystical journey to the inner house and beyond.

    "Natalie Wright has divined in Emily's House a simultaneous modern and ancient fairy tale of the greatest kind: sans parents, sans immediate consequence, sans cowardice. Bravery is said to be not the lack of fear, but action in the face of it. Like the best of Grimm, Perrault and Charles Schulz, Ms. Wright's kids find themselves amidst adventure, terror and turmoil, as well as ineffective and/or absent parental units. By their own bootstraps they must find help themselves to find their way home, to save not only each other, but perchance an entire civilization. "Adults drool, kids rule" is the motto for any well-written young adult or children's tale. Natalie's kids indeed rule. 
    This one will last, alongside Grimm, Perrault and Schulz, in the coffers of timeless, fantasy literature. Plus, there's Hindergog and no one could not love Hindergog! Well done, Ms. Wright. Well done, indeed." - Jennifer S. Devore, author of "The Darlings of Orange County"
This was to be one of the best book I read and it's only the end of the first chapter
this is the first book I read where the main character's name is Emily! I OWN THIS FREAKING HOUSE NOW!!
I can already guess that some readers aren't going to sleep for a while.
Sorry, I just had to point out that the actor who plays Killian on OUAT is Colin O'DONOGHUE. Sorry. Had to make that OUAT reference. Sorry. Sorry.
What  is this? What... what just happened? Another great book from Wattpad!?
                                    I'm in love.
I'm just glad the title isn't a dark depressing omen of despair. Emily's House sounds kind of like a show on CBBC, it's comforting and interesting.
