Lily likes the way things are, but things are constantly changing. First her cousin Hannah moves away, her grandpa dies, and new jobs arise for Lily. But with all these changes, the only thing that Lily actually wants to change is her schoolmate Effie's mischief making . . . but as Lily soon discovers, a big change in her family is the biggest surprise of all!
Change is brewing for Lily Lapp. Her favorite cousin, Hannah, moves away and Harvey Hershberger, a boy with a talent for trouble, moves right in. Harvey's antics stir up the entire schoolhouse, and his fondness for Lily gets under Aaron Yoder's skin. Add in a mischievous dog rescued by Lily's brother, an old Shawnee Indian and a mother bear, and a secret Lily's mother is keeping, and you've got a recipe for laughter, love, and big surprises.
Girls ages 8 to 12 will love navigating the changes in Lily's world with her in this final book in the sweetly simple Adventures of Lily Lapp series.
