Fans of When Charley Met Emma will love seeing Emma champion her inner awesomeness in this inspirational sequel that teaches readers about the power of self-advocacy.

Emma has limb differences, but different isn't bad, sad, or strange. It's just different! But when some accessibility problems get in the way at the local art museum, it ruins the fun of a class trip...and then Emma's friend Charley makes things even worse! In the middle of a really bad day, Emma has to call upon her sense of inner awesome to stand up for herself and teach everyone a lesson about the transformative power of feeling awesome in your own skin.

Amy Webb's follow-up to When Charley Met Emma, Awesomely Emma will have all kids cheering as they learn to see the inner awesome in themselves and those around them.

"An inclusive depiction of a disabled girl who declares that bodies may be different but none are wrong. With a main character who confidently navigates her world and deals with strong emotions in a positive way, this title has a clear theme of self-empowerment."
