A Surprise for Lily by Mary Ann Kinsinger and Suzanne Woods Fisher

A Surprise for Lily (The Adventures of Lily Lapp #4)Book Description:
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.

My Thoughts:
This was a good book.  Lilly is back!  She and a new friend are up to all sorts of mischief.  There are rescues, a puppy, and many more adventures.  Some friends leave, new friends arrive, and Lily is center stage for all of it!
I loved the roller coaster of the story, just one thing right after the other.  Seeing all the characters interacting and the old characters mixed with the new was amazing.  The author did a wonderful job again with Lily.  I know it is written for young girls but it is a story that I enjoyed as well.
I rate this a 4/5.  It can be a stand alone but reading the others in the series is better.

Thank you to Revell for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
