Pete and Lily

Amy Hest, Author Clarion Books $11.95 (112p) ISBN 978-0-89919-354-0
Pete and Lily are best friends. They also happen to live in the same apartment building on Manhattan's Central Park West. Pete's (short for Patricia) Mom is a recent widow who's coping with a job and being a single mother. Lily's father is a divorced detective and a jogging addict. When the girls discover that their parents have been dating on the sly, they form the Anti-Romance Mission to ward off the affair. Hest delivers a snappy novel that sensitively portrays the ups and downs of growing up in a broken family, and coming of age in city surroundings. (912)
