Ages 9-13

The Story: Lily is having the most boring summer EVER. Her best friend has abandoned her for Young Executives Camp, and there is nothing to do but go on family outings with her parents. Then Lily meets the coolest girl, Karma, and her incredibly cool parents. And guess what? They're her relatives! This summer is looking up, and Lily things she just might be on the brink of cool.

Inspiration: "This book was inspired by the author's
adolescence of too many books, too few boys, and no cute clothes whatsoever. In the end, however, Elizabeth agrees with Lily that being a writer is the coolest thing of all".
