Lily's Crossing is a real "tear-jerker". so get out your hankies. Patricia R. Giff, the author, is all about family, and so is this historical novel for young people. It is a great read for 4th graders and up, but adults like it, too.
Lily, the main character, is about to have a bummer of a summer vacation. Her father (her mom is dead), Poppy, is off to Europe as an Army Engineer from the U.S., and Lily is left alone on her vacation, except for a young boy, Albert, who she doesn't like. This changes when Lily finds out about the deaths of Albert's parents, and together they care for a kitten and share their problems. The third-person narrative style was a success. ( )

Lily goes with her father and grandmother to their annual summer home at the coast, but World War II is raging and Lily quickly sees that this summer will not be like those in the past. Her father, an engineer, heads to Europe to help with the recovery after the Allies reconquer France. Her one friend at the summer home leaves early on. She is left looking forward to a boring summer with her irritating grandmother and no friends.
But then Albert shows up. Reluctant at first to befriend this odd boy, who is a refugee from Hungary, they soon become good friends. The only problem is Lily's habit of lying to have something interesting to say. She tells Albert that they can row a boat out to a troop ship, climb aboard, and get to Europe to find her father and his sister.
A nice story of a friendship that develops during difficult times under strained circumstances. ( )

Young Lily, mother less and her father drafted to serve in World War II, spends the summer before sixth grade with her grandmother in Rockaway. An independent spirit she comes to terms with her lying and finds a good friend in a Hungarian refugee boy. Good sense of time and place. ( )

As in past years, Lily will spend the summer in Rockaway, in her family's summer house by the Atlantic Ocean. But this summer of 1994, WWII has changed everyone's life. Lily's best friend, Margaret, has moved to a wartime factory town, and much worse, Lily's father is going overseas to war.

Hazel Rochman (Booklist, February 1, 1997 (Vol. 93, No. 11))
With wry comedy and intense feeling, and without intrusive historical detail, Giff gets across a strong sense of what it was like on the home front during World War II. Lily makes up stories about her involvement with spies, submarines, and anti-Nazi plots in her small seaside town in 1944, but underlying her melodrama and lies is grief for her dead mother. When Lily's father has to leave to fight in France, she is so hurt and furious that she refuses even to say good-bye to him. As she gets to know Albert, an orphaned Hungarian refugee, she learns about his secret anguish: he is guilt-stricken about the younger sister he left behind (he, also, didn't say good-bye), and he is determined, somehow, to cross the ocean and find her. The happy ending, when Lily's father finds Albert's sister in France, is too contrived, but the reunion scenes at home are heartbreaking. The friendship story is beautifully drawn: both Lily and Albert are wary, reluctant, and needy; they quarrel as much as they bond, and in the end, they help each other to be brave. Category: Middle Readers. 1997, Delacorte, $14.95. Gr. 5-8.

Although Lily generally looks forward to spending the summer at her family's vacation home in Rockaway, the summer of 1944 is different. For one thing, her best friend Margaret has moved away for the summer and, for another, her father has gone to fight in the War. Left with just her stern grandmother for company, lonely Lily tries to make friends with the only person close to her own age: Albert, a Hungarian refugee spending the summer in Rockaway. Lily initiates the friendship with a lie by telling Albert she is planning to swim to a ship that will take her to Europe so that she can find her father. She promises Albert that he can join her. As their friendship grows throughout the summer, so, too, does the lie and Lily simply doesn't know how to stop it before it leads to tragedy. Details of time and place are skillfully interwoven into a story that features well-rounded, believable characters. Throughout, Giff provides plenty of dramatic tension by contrasting Lily's private thoughts with her public actions, until she is ultimately able to merge the two in Lily's powerful crossing into adolescence. CCBC categories: Fiction for Children; Historical People, Places and Events. 1997, Delacorte, 180 pages, $14.95. Ages 9-14.
