Lily Max is determined to win the Snow Queen crown at the school ball by designing and creating the winning dress. Of course, she is not the only one dreaming of winning – but do the other contenders have the same eye for design and fashion? Lily Max is an individual; a young woman who is not afraid to forgo fashion’s rules and create her own! A delightful first book from author Jane Bloomfield, Lily Max is a confident and creative young woman who enjoys to stand out and be different from the crowd.
This is a really nice story which reinforces the importance of being yourself, and if that involves hot gluing doll’s heads onto your sneakers – then so be it! Lily Max is the star in cast of believable characters, some as to be expected e.g. mean teacher, crazy relative, as well as a couple of surprise characters.
A positive, well-written book that I really enjoyed and will be recommending to my nieces. Appropriate for readers 8 years and up.
