The hip and heart-warming story of what it means to be a girl and what it takes to become a woman.
When Lilly's best friend, Maya, gets engaged, the tenuous peace treaty Lilly thought she had finally established with her perennially single self shows itself to be as long-lasting as shoulder pads and frozen yoghurt. Wavering wildly between ecstasy and envy, serial dater and retail-therapy shopper, Lilly vows to get her life together.
While sipping lattes from the Coffee Bean and planning forever with Maya, Lilly embarks on an uproariously comical and strikingly poignant ride of transformation, told through a series of delightfully engaging interior monologues.
Travelling the byways of her own past, Lilly learns to be optimistic about her future and relish her new-found "chic-dom". In a voice that grows stronger, louder and more articulate than she ever imagined, Lilly ultimately comes to embrace her on-the-verge-of-womanhood status in all its uncertain yet exciting glory.
Depicting the comic adventures of being a grown-up still coming of age, Rebecca Bloom evocatively and enthusiastically reveals tender truths about friendship and true love.
