Good as Lily is the story of young woman, Grace, finding her way through life, love, the future, and high school. Grace is a Korean-American high school student who on her 18th birthday finds herself with some rather unusual companions, multiple versions of herself at different ages. Together they explore the meaning of life and surviving high school.

Kim deftly tells a tale of Grace, her friends, and the other Grace's, overcoming their fears and dreams to achieve reality. At times they fail and give into the flaws that make them all too human and at other times they rise above their flaws and succeed. Kim successfully weaves in multiple versions of Grace and shows that no matter the age, no matter the wisdom, life still has challenges to face and everything isn't always perfect. Hamm's illustrations are inspired by the world of manga and while not overly complex, add a sense of realism to the story being told. The images ground the story in real life, capturing the daily bits and grind of life that are often overlooked in the world around us, but let us know where we are.

Although Good as Lily is a relatively short tale, it delivers a great story as the characters learn that growing up isn't always easy and how they can adapt to life.
