Children's LiteratureThis exuberant comedy of middle-school Love at First Sight will capture and delight its target audience. Lily Blennerhassett, future writer extraordinaire, lands two jobs—Advice Columnist for the Mulgrew Sentinel and assistant to Real Writer Ellis Parson, who just happens to be the mother of Lily's first heartthrob. Engaging letters of advice alternate with Lily's fantasies and shots of her family's and friends' quirky behavior until revelation strikes. The heartthrob is not the Love of Her Life. Instead, her friend Bonnie's brother, Jake, just might be. Funny and full of great language, this story of Lily and her best friends—Charlotte McGrath, future executive, and Bonnie, devotee of Out of the Body Experiences—will bring readers to the brink of laughter, new vocabulary, and growing-up lessons time after time. 2005, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 9 to 13.
