Reading The Scarlet Letter for class, Emma starts experiencing weird events — it’s almost like she’s seeing life the way Hester Prynne did, experiencing her mistakes and regrets, her life. Can Emma break free of Hester’s mistakes, or is fate going to make her repeat all of Hester’s errors? (KTEEN, Apr., 255 pp., $9.95, ISBN: 9780758269492, TR, 13 & Up)
