Grade 2-3-In this fourth story narrated by first-grader Lily, she is left out when her former friends LaVon and bossy Daisy exclude her. She courts Hilary as a new friend to boss around and to show the others that she is a person to be reckoned with. This plan backfires when Hilary proves to have feelings and a mind of her own. Luckily, and believably, Lily's brother and mother help the child through the rough spots of friendship. Lily is as emotionally sensitive as Ramona and a little less precocious than Junie B. Jones, but with similar misunderstandings and conflicts about life. Warner knows what's important to young children and has a good ear for dialogue. Readers will nod in recognition of Lily's problems with triangular friendships, classroom politics, and the many nuances of Valentine's-card giving.
