I had the pleasure of reading several drafts of LILY LO and LOVED this story for its gorgeous writing, & lovable characters. For those of you who knew Frances, you will hear her voice in every word and see bits of her kind energy in Lily's character.

“I was forewarned that an early draft of this novel would make my mouth water for steamed dumplings.  Years later, LILY LO makes my soul yearn for more Frances Lee Hall.  Hall achieves an emotional taste palate of a girl’s heart with the range of the salty and sweet lessons learned in between.  Like her creator, Lily Lo is a forever friend.”  Rita Williams-Garcia, Newbery Honor winner, 3-time Coretta Scott King Author Award winner, 3-time National Book Award finalist
