Detour for Emmy is a young adult novel by Marilyn Reynolds. It won the South Carolina Young Adult Book Award for 1995-1996.[1] It deals with the impact of an unexpected pregnancy on a teenage girl. Like other novels by the author, it is based on the life challenges of her students.[2] It was one of the American Library Association's Best Books for Young Adults for 1993. The explicit nature of the content caused it to be removed from the El Mirage, Arizona School District libraries.[3]
