First - Life With Lily
Second - A New Home For Lily
And now we reach this review, for the third book - A Big Year For Lily.
Lily is about to be ten! That is a big time for an Amish girl, she gets to take her first step towards being a woman, growing up! But before Lily can get to ten years old, she has lots of challenges occurring Someone is swapping out her lunch items, and Teacher Rhonda things she could be a sandwich thief Yes, that is truly awful! No good Amish girl would swap out lunches with out asking someone, and while Lily's lunch might not be all she wants it to be, she wouldn't do that. How can she clear her name?
So very much to do when you are the oldest and only girl in a family. Floors to wax, bats to get away from, little brothers to take care of, or avoid. Effe who keeps tormenting her at school, and Arron Yoder - he is still mean and does the most discussing things, but it seems that Cousin Hannah is smitten with him. That is just about unbearable. How will Lily make it through this?
You just have to read this book, because it is too much fun and a wonderful third book in this series. I'm waiting for the 4th book!
Every day brings new adventures for Lily! With cousin Hannah at her side, life is filled with surprises--including a rotten school trick played on her by Effie Kauffman and a surprising change of heart in the worst boy imaginable, Aaron Yoder. But tears turn to laughter as Lily turns ten, wears grown-up clothes, sits with her friends at church . . . and turns the tables on Effie.
You'll adore this tale of love, laughter, forgiveness, and ties that bind an Amish family together.
Mary Ann Kinsinger was raised Old Order Amish in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. She met and married her husband, whom she knew from school days, and started a family. After they chose to leave the Amish church, Mary Ann began a blog, A Joyful Chaos, as a way to pass on her warm childhood memories to her own children. From the start, this blog found a ready audience and even captured the attention of key media players, such as the influential blog Amish America and the New York Times. She lives in Pennsylvania.
