Summary of My Best Friend Summary of My Best Friend Reviews for My Best Friend An Excerpt from My Best Friend

It's summertime at the neighborhood pool, and Lily has her best friend picked out: Tamika. But Tamika already has a best friend and doesn't care about Lily. No matter how hard Lily tries to impress Tamika—from getting Mama to buy her a new bathing suit to having Daddy help her practice her dive—nothing works.

Told in Lily's honest first-person voice and paired with beautiful water color illustrations by E. B. Lewis, this charming story will help kids learn about what a true friend really is.

"This simple but powerful picture book speaks to the yearning outsider in every child. Consider it a first purchase for friendship-themed storytimes, bibliotherapy, and for its gorgeous, almost palpably liquid art." -School Library Journal, starred review
