Overview

It’s summertime at the neighborhood pool, and Lily has her best friend picked out: Tamika. But Tamika already has a best friend and doesn’t care about Lily. No matter how hard Lily tries to impress Tamika—from getting Mama to buy her a new bathing suit to having Daddy help her practice her dive—nothing works.

Told in Lily’s honest first-person voice and paired with beautiful water color illustrations by E. B. Lewis, this charming story will help kids learn about what a true friend really is.

Praise

“This simple but powerful picture book speaks to the yearning outsider in every child. Consider it a first purchase for friendship-themed storytimes, bibliotherapy, and for its gorgeous, almost palpably liquid art.” -School Library Journal, starred review
