About this item

Emily wants to be an artist. She likes painting and loves the way artists like Pablo Picasso mixed things up.

Emily's life is a little mixed up right now. Her dad doesn't live at home anymore, and it feels like everything around her is changing.

"When Picasso was sad for a while," says Emily, "he only painted in blue. And now I am in my blue period."

It might last quite some time.
