Jan 01, 30 July EMMA-JEAN LAZARUS FELL OUT OF A TREE by Lauren Tarshis, Dial, MarchISBN:"It had been nearly two and a half years since Emma-Jean had climbed, but the motions came right back to her, as if they had been programmed into her limbs.

She shimmied up the skinny trunk like her father had taught her, keeping her knees tight together/5. May 15, Verified Purchase. Tarshis, Lauren. Emma-Jean Lazarus Fell Out of a Tree.

No. Mr. Petrowski had been driven- quite literally- out of the bounds of rational thinking by his problems with the car dealership. The sound made Emma-Jean’s head ache.

It was the worst sound Emma-Jean had ever heard. It was worse than slamming lockers or the screeching of car tires. This was the sound of misery.
