Lily E. Bloomfield's Perfectly Imperfect Year

Christine LeMieux

"I sat there, gazing up at the hazy moon's timid smile. I imagined that it must've felt bashful with all those pretty stars winking at it, in admiration, night after night. But this mighty moon hanging in the sky was the real star of the show and I bet that it didn't even know... it was like Henry, quiet and brilliant, and no one ever making a big fuss over it."―Lily E. Bloomfield
Times are tough for spunky, ten-year-old, Lily Eleanor Bloomfield. Trying to gain popularity isn't easy and losing her only friend to the new girl while being humiliated on the first day of school is devastating.

Longing for friendship, Lily eventually turns to Henry Busby, a quiet and unadventurous kid, who prefers books to people. Lily tries to pull Henry out of his shell and back into the world, but his distrust runs deep. When a sudden string of pranks harshly tests their friendship, Henry returns to the safety of his books and the library that has been his hideout for years. However, Lily isn't willing to surrender to their school's bullies, as she realizes that she too must come to terms with her own fears. No matter how uncomfortable things can become, Lily learns that standing up for what's right is always the best thing to do.
