It is easier than believing she is actually related to Jane and Roland Traywick, her Power couple parents who own Traywicks of San Francisco, the most chichi department store on the West Coast. While her parents party with Muccia in Milan and Gabbana in Paris, Lily hangs out at home in ratty jeans and an old T-shirt.

Reagan, a fashionista who has it all, offers just the solution: a major life makeover!

Publisher's Description

Lily Traywick thinks she must have been adopted. It’s easier than believing she’s actually related to Jane and Roland Traywick, her power-couple parents who own Traywick’s of San Francisco, the most chichi department store on the West Coast. While her parents party with Muccia in Milan and Gabbana in Paris, Lily hangs out at home in ratty jeans and an old T-shirt. She loves softball, guys, and Jesus, and she’s eager to make her own way in the world. Feeling that her life is on hold, she turns to her best friend Reagan Axness. Reagan, a fashionista who has it all, offers just the solution: a major life makeover.

Lily is soon dressing in the latest must-have fashions and pursuing a writing career. She’s even dating the “perfect” guy. But does he love her for who she really is? And will he be able to resist the tempting seductress who has her eye on him? As Lily’s old friends question her new way of life, and public scandal, family drama, and technological disasters add to her confusion, Lily is forced to consider whether her quest to have it all will cause her to lose everything that matters.

Hot off their debut success, Emily Ever After, “good-girl” chick-lit trailblazers Dayton and Vanderbilt return with a witty, refreshingly real story of a young woman’s adventures in the high-powered world of San Francisco high fashion.

    This book had a lot of funny things in it. But, did Lily really think that none of her friends would not read her blog? It was on the internet. I was surprised that none of her friends had read it before they found out about it. Lily was just plain mean to the church girls. When she was making fun of them it made her look like she was perfect and did no wrong. The authors could had done so much with Sam and didn't. I liked Reagon. She was so full of energy. Overall, if you want to laugh there were funny parts. But, I would not consider this Christian fiction. It was borderline.

    This book was horrible. I was very disappointed. A major selling point is it's "Christian" qualities, and they were sorely lacking. If this is Christianity, then I want no part of it. Fortunately, however, Christianity is much deeper and more meaningful than it is portrayed in this book. The characters were well developed, but not extremely likable. Also, "Sam" was a major loser. He's going to cheat on you again, Lily. Leave him!

    I have sort of varying opinions on this book. At first glance, it seems like a light, humorous read, with a few laugh-out-loud moments. But the more I read, the more I didn't like it. The whole thing was just steeped in a sort of 'uncaring Christian' philosophy. Lilly crosses the line a few too many times. The line, that is, between obviously lighthearted sarcasm, and mean-spiritedness, especially to "church girls". The characters all just seemed a little stereotypical, nothing out of the ordinary like I look for in a truly good book.I also didn't like that the dream guy said once that he'd "pretty much always been saved" and that statement was never, ever questioned.My advice - check it out from the library, but don't spend your money on it (Like it did!) because, while it's interesting, and made me laugh a few times, that's just about all the good I can say about it :(

    I thought this was a fun and cool read. I really like this new Chick-lit genre and this book definitely fits in it. My favorite scene in the book would have to be the hockey game where she has to wear that shark head. I just about died laughing. I know how Lily feels about being one of the guys. It happened to me too, they are so used to hanging out with you that they don't realize you're actually a girl. I'm glad Lily kept rejecting Sam when he tried to come back to her after leaving Delia. He needed to suffer after what he had put her through. To be honest, if I had been in Lily's shoes at that point, I would have been severely depressed. Everyone had turned on her even though she had just been telling the truth about them. To be fair though, I don't know why Lily just hadn't used code names when writing in her blog. If you plan on spilling out details of your life, you can't use real names because you never know who will be reading about it. I did enjoy them though. (Although do you realize that fictional characters always get more hits than real people do?) I also appreciated how Lily is a Christian that is strong about her beliefs (she wouldn't date Sam at first because she wasn't sure) and wants her friends to become believers, yet she is not the pushy overbearing stereotypical Christian like other characters in the book.Excellent book, one I would recommend anyone (Christian or non-Christian) to read. This is a fun read that everyone can enjoy because everyone know how it feels to be in Lily's shoes.

    WOW! I just fell in love with Anne Dayton's and May Vanderbilt's writing when EMILY EVER AFTER came out last year and was a month's book review listing on the ChristianSingles.com! The discussion was terrific on that website and even had me subscribe to their magazine. CONSIDER LILY attracts me to it because I believe Jesus didn't mean for Christians to yell their viewpoints from the roof-tops nor to cram it down the throats of people. We learn from the lives of others and how things just happen to turn out and in this novel. Christ looks kindly upon the main character Lily! What a find! Check it out!
