"Destiny, Rewritten," by Kathryn Fitzmaurice is a fast, fun read about figuring out what your destiny is and who controls it.

 

 

 

Emily Elizabeth Davis's destiny was picked out for her in a second hand bookshop when her mother picked up a complete copy of Emily Dickinson's poems and felt that it was destiny for her daughter to be named after the famous poet. The problem is,  Emily doesn't even like writing poetry. Emily likes writing romance novels, and wishes her life was like the endings of them.

 

 

 

Emily's mother wrote about Emily's life between the poems, but she doesn't care that much about the book until her mother tells her that her father's name is written somewhere in the book. But as soon as Emily starts scanning through the book for something she's wanted to know for years, her cousin makes a big mistake and loses her book.

 

 

 

Emily, her cousin, Mortie, and her best friend, Wavey then go to extremes to find the book, skipping school to search all over the city for Emily's new prized possession. After searching through all the second hand bookstores, Emily seriously thinks about her mother's advice, letting destiny reunite her with her book.

 

 

 

There are a lot of small things to take notice of throughout the book that will make sense at the end. I liked how many connections events had to each other. Fate takes over the book and does some crazy things that (seriously!) would very unlikely happen in real life, which makes the book a bit cheesy, but overall, it was very well written. I would recommend this book for upper elementary and young middle schoolers looking for a cute book that makes you think about how the little things you do matter the most.
