We all know Emily the Strange is the world's weirdest thirteen-year-old, but do you have any idea how that came to be? Would you believe that Emily wasn't always the curious and confident stranger we know today? For any girl, a thirteenth birthday is a big deal, and that's doubly true for Emily. Emily doesn't know it yet, but a surprise gift from a long-lost aunt is more than just a family heirloom-it also holds the key to unlocking the mystery of her lineage and the secrets of her fate!
* In 2011 Emily will become a full-fledged rock star to international audiences when Virgin Records releases her first-ever rock 'n' roll CD!
* In addition to Dark Horse's long-running comic-book series, Emily is also the subject of three young-adult novels published by HarperCollins!
