A Surprise For Lily is the fourth book in this charming series.
A Big Year for Lily is the third book.
A New Home for Lily is the second book.
Life with Lily is first.
In this book we pick up with Lily and her Cousin Hannah. They decided to go boating. One little issue. Lily can't swim! Ah- life isn't for most children, and especially not for Lily. This year of her life is bringing so many changes! I will not tell them all to you, but let's say people are leaving, and people are coming, and could it be, just maybe.... that Arron Yoder could not be the worst boy ever? Being 11 means so many things are happening. Cooking, new friends, old friends, and just daily life events that make up our lives. In A Surprise For Lily Effie seems to know somethings she shouldn't, but how? And the new teacher, and the school situation sure is a big change. The biggest surprise is yet to come! Read and see!
I can't wait for book five, and as much as I adore this series and would keep it on my shelf, one of my family members is friends with a Mennonite family. They are in need of good clean reading materiel for their children. Guess where my book set is going?
With each chapter in Lily's life comes another ever-more exciting adventure. But no one could have prepared Lily for the biggest surprise of all!
