A New Home for Lily

Authors: Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher
Publisher: Revell
January 2013
ISBN: 978-0-8007-2133-6
Genre: young adult

New town, new house, new friends, and always lots of fun.

Lily Lapp is moving with her family to Pennsylvania to join a new Amish community. In this small town, Lily has to get used to a new school, new friends, and Aaron Yoder the most annoying boy in the world! But some changes are good. Like exploring an attic full of adventures and getting a new baby brother. Still, Lily wonders why can’t God just bring her just one sister?

A NEW HOME FOR LILY is the second book in The Adventures of Lily Lapp series. My eleven year old daughter grabbed this book and read it twice before I got a chance to look at it. Since the book is intended for young adults, I thought I’d be fun to have my daughter write the review. In the words of my eleven year old, “Lily is real silly and she learns some important lessons such as how to forgive people and learning how to be more patient and how to love the things she has. The book is really exciting and fun. I recommend it very highly. I think that when kids read it they will learn the lessons along with Lily, especially how to be more patient and like the things that they have and how to be less greedy."

For children 8 – 12 years old. But adult fans of Amish fiction will enjoy it too. 5 stars. $12.99. 272 pages.
