Although the story line is great - young girl fights for friend being evicted for not paying the rent- the story falls flat as the characters are not very well developed. As the reader, I had a hard time connecting with them emotionally or visualizing the scenes in my head as the story was written on a surface level, unfolding too quickly without taking the time to involve the reader. Not a waste of time to read, but not a book I would read again or recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I read this book to the children at the Charter School I work at and they truly enjoyed listening, discussing and putting themselves in every sistuation as I read through the book. We discussed Lilly Etta's actions and each child came to a conclusion as to what they would do in such a case. They were truly touched by her deep friendship. This book can teach children what they can do to be a loyal friend to someone in need.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
