Emily Knight I AM… is about a thirteen year old warrior named Emily, who is far from ordinary and she hates it. She’s the daughter of a heroic warrior and the press’s favourite problem child. Against her wishes she is sent to the Osaki Training School to control her powers. She learns to fly, breathe under water and battle but someone has their eyes set on Emily – can she protect herself…and everything that she loves? Emily Knight I AM… has elements of grittiness that is more mature than other fantasy books. As well as being laugh out loud funny, the characters are real, complicated and relatable. A. Bello pushes the boundaries by breaking the conventions in this diverse, absorbing novel.Emily Knight I AM… is set to be the book that changes kids fantasy. Praise for Emily Knight I AM ‘A true literary gem!’ The Lookhit.com ‘…radical and rebellious yet touching and empowering. A must read!’ Style Biblio ‘…teens will not want to put this book down!’ Chelsea Bravo, Men’s Fashion Designer ‘…a book that better reflects the demographic of British students’ Naomi Adams, Primary School Teacher


Emily Knight: I AM was a fantastic book from the start and kept me gripped. Emily was a typical thirteen year old but she had powers, something most thirteen year olds wish they had.
Emily is sent to Osaki Training School which obviously trains her to use her powers.
I am not going to tell you what happens in the book because it would spoil it for those that want to read it but it is very good.
Well written and you will not be able to put it down.
If you like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games then you will like this!

5 stars must read
