Private Lily

Overview

Lilly Hill may only be six years old, but she's old enough to need some PRIVACY! Her big brother, Case, has his own room, but she has to share with her mother. Couldn't she just try out a few great ideas—like sleeping in the bathtub or in her mother's closet? After a series of funny failed attempts, Case comes to the rescue with an inventive solution to Lily's privacy dilemma. And Lily sees that accepting some help can solve even the most perplexing of problems.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Lily Hill is only six, and therefore a middle grade novel seems an unlikely place for a protagonist like her. But circumstances have forced her mother to move with the kids, and Lily's problem is lack of space to call her own. In searching for a private spot Lily finds several places, each unlikelier than the last. She's a spunky little kid, precocious but with enough grit to take on an army of troubles. The humor should keep a middle grader reading on, even if Lily's age occasionally jars.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Six-year-old Lily lives with her mother and pesky 12-year-old brother in a tiny apartment. Desperate for her own room, the resourceful child attempts to create a private space for herself. First, she tries the bathtub. However, after an uncomfortable night she looks for another nook. When other spots prove to be equally unsatisfactory, Lily's mother and brother join forces to make a special place for her. Lily's other concerns-only touched upon here-center around her father, whose recent incarceration prompted the family move, and making friends at a new school. Black-and-white drawings illustrate this easy chapter book. While this is not an essential purchase, some readers may identify with this child and her problems.-Mary M. Hopf, Los Angeles Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
Lily, who is six, her brother Casey, twelve, and their mother have moved from a house in New Jersey to a small apartment in Philadelphia. Casey has a space of his own, while Lily has to share a room with her mother. Seeking privacy, Lily attempts to sleep in the bathtub with the chair cushions, but the faucet leaks and the cushions get wet; she then tries to make a cave under the kitchen table that lasts only until a spider takes a walk across her face. Sleeping in the closet doesn't work out much better. Casey provides the solution when he spots a folding screen in a used-furniture store, which the family refurbishes to Lily's satisfaction. Warner keeps the tone light and the focus tight, so readers only know that the family's reduced circumstances are because a "mean judge" has sent Lily's father to jail for "taking stuff that wasn't his." In true six-year-old form, Lily's attention is on the problem of privacy, and while a one-chapter predicament has been spun into a novel, the childlike first-person narration is written with considerable humor and grace. (b&w illustrations, not seen) (Fiction. 7-9)
