Lily B. is back and as interesting as usual.  She is still writing her thoughts in her diary but now she is also writing for the school newspaper.  Her advise column is just so Lily.  Not only does she dish out advise, she also corrects the letters she gets.  And now Lily has landed a job with a real author.  Ellis Parsons is new in town and needs an assistant to help her with her new book.  When Lily shows up for her first day, she discovers that Ellis is not just a writer -- she is the mother of The Boy.  Lily has been pining over The Boy from afar but now she is actually in his house and working with his mother.  Filled with wonderful friendships and incredible vocabulary.  Yes, Lily B. is back and I, for one, am glad.
