About Remarkably Ruby
Pride. Popularity . . . Poetry? Middle school. Ruby and Mia are total opposites: Ruby is a little awkward, not a “joiner,” and loves to write poetry. While Mia is type A, popular(ish), and wants to be class prez. They used to be friends. But now they have nothing in common anymore . . . Or do they? The sixth and latest book in the best-selling Emmie & Friends series, Remarkable Ruby is a story about how there’s more to everyone than meets the eye.
