Emma Hawthorne is one of the main characters in the series. She is the bookworm and aspiring writer of the group.
Personality & AppearanceEdit
Appearance Emma has curly brown hair which she grows out and cuts regularly, brown eyes, and wears purple glasses. It is implied that she begins to wear contacts. In The Mother Daughter Book Club, she is slightly overweight, but she loses weight in Much Ado About Anne by commencing figure skating classes when Cassidy Sloane recommends them. She is of average height.
Emma's best friend is Jess Delaney, but Emma recalls that she and Megan were good friends as well when they were younger. Emma has a crush on Zach Norton from kindergarten all the way up until sixth grade, and writes a poem about him called Zach Attack, which Becca Chadwick reads aloud, to Emma's embarrassment. Over time, her crush on Zach fades and she develops an attraction to Stewart Chadwick. They begin dating soon after. Annabelle Fairfax is Emma's arch-enemy, and the two have a rivalry throughout Pies and Prejudice. Emma develops a friendship in the third book with Eva Bergson, her skating coach. Eva passes away at the skating rink in the fourth book, leaving money for the book club to spend (they choose to go to England to visit Emma).
Emma's mother is the one who came up with the idea of the Book Club, and always hands out folders in every meeting with facts about the author whose book they are reading. In the fourth book, Emma's parents house-swap with an English family, and Emma and her older brother, Darcy Hawthorne, move to England for a year with their parents. The Hawthornes have 3 pets over hte course of the series, Lady Jane Grey (cat), Melville (cat) and Pip (a golden lab). Melville passed away in between books 4 and 5. Emma quotes that her mother says not to be sad about Melville, and that he lived a long, wonderful life, but that Mrs. Hawthorne seemed to miss Melville the most. Although everyone was sad when Mel (Jess gave him that nickname) died, he still waited for them to come back from England. Emma is very close to her mother, and gets along well with her brother, Darcy, who's very athletic.
