Favorite Daydream: Winning the Congressional Medal of Honor by saving the President from attack dogs using only a raincoat and a hanger. Lily is having the most boring summer EVER. Her best friend has abandoned her for Young Executives Camp, and there is nothing to do but go on family outings with her parents.

Professional reviews

"Young teenager (and future famous author) Lily Blennerhassett faces a deathly boring summer because her best friend has gone to camp. But prospects dramatically improve when Lily meets distant relatives at a wedding. They're definitely not typical Blennerhassett family--they're sophisticated, fashionable, and well-traveled. Even vegetarian! When Lily's uncool parents deny her permission to see the very cool LeBlancs, Lily shocks herself by sneaking out to see them anyway. This teenager's journal is ideally suited to audio, and reader Kaili Vernoff splendidly presents a 13-year-old's aspirations and uncertainties. Vernoff carries the listener through the whirlwind events and makes Lily's gullibility entirely believable. N.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
