Loved this story about a motherless girl who finds mother figures in her life. The book is slow moving & exciting and realistic & fable-like. I felt emotionally attached to Lily and some of the other characters in this book and I cared what happened to them. I found it amazing and a bit of a stretch that Lily showed the courage and resilience she did, but there are real kids who are like that. I shed some cathartic tears and I was really engaged as I was reading the book, but I admit it wasn’t a book I continued to think about for long after I read it.
