Overview

Six-year-old Lily Hill is a medium sort of kid. She's medium smart, medium artistic, and has the medium number of best friends, which is two. Or it was two until she pushed her friend Daisy on the playground. It was an accident! Now Daisy won't play with her and neither will her other best friend, LaVon, since bossy Daisy won't let her. Lily is the left-over friend. But there's no time to feel sorry for herself. Lily's decided that it's time for her to be the bossy one. In this humorous and thought-provoking elementary school chapter book, Lily learns that being "the boss" in a new friendship isn't all it's cracked up to be. There are better ways of making and regaining friends.

When first grader Lily gets into a fight with her two best friends, the experience teaches her a lot about friendship.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen R. Braaf
LaVon and Daisy are Lily's best friends--or so she thought. One day at lunch, they send her away so that they can talk privately. Lily feels left out. Misunderstandings, jealously, and a lack of social skills widen the rift between the girls. Lily befriends a shy first grader named Hilary when her teacher pairs them to work on "fruit math." Content to let Lily have the upper hand, Hilary makes a perfect new best friend. But as Valentine's Day approaches, Lily misses LaVon and Daisy and begins to resent Hilary. While making cards for their classmates, they have a disagreement and Lily declares that Hilary is no longer her friend. Her family sides with Hilary and Lily apologizes. She realizes that it's not good to be bossy, and she learns that "...just because someone stands up to you doesn't mean they can't be a friend." Lily gets beautiful, handcrafted cards from LaVon and Hilary on Valentine's Day, and even though Daisy's card is mean, Lily considers the day a success.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-In this fourth story narrated by first-grader Lily, she is left out when her former friends LaVon and bossy Daisy exclude her. She courts Hilary as a new friend to boss around and to show the others that she is a person to be reckoned with. This plan backfires when Hilary proves to have feelings and a mind of her own. Luckily, and believably, Lily's brother and mother help the child through the rough spots of friendship. Lily is as emotionally sensitive as Ramona and a little less precocious than Junie B. Jones, but with similar misunderstandings and conflicts about life. Warner knows what's important to young children and has a good ear for dialogue. Readers will nod in recognition of Lily's problems with triangular friendships, classroom politics, and the many nuances of Valentine's-card giving.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
