Product Details


“A unique and compelling novel from a master storyteller.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“Told from the alternating perspectives of the endearing protagonists, the novel humorously verifies that loss can lead to surprising beginnings.”—Publishers Weekly 

“Earnest and gently humorous insights into themes of friendship, loss, and perseverance.” —Kirkus

Praise for Lily and Dunkin:

“Gephart clearly has a lot of heart, and she tells their stories with compassion.”–Kirkus 

“A thoughtfully and sensitively written work of character-driven fiction that dramatically addresses two important subjects that deserve more widespread attention.”–Booklist, starred 

“Gephart sympathetically contrasts the physical awkwardness, uncertainty, and longings of these two outsiders during a few tightly-plotted months, building to a crescendo of revelation…[A] valuable portrait of two teenagers whose journeys are just beginning.”–PW 
“This would be a fantastic addition to any middle grade library collection, and is highly recommended for all ages.”–VOYA
“Lily and Dunkin is a delight. Here’s a book for anyone who’s ever struggled with being different–or anyone who’s ever loved someone who bears the burden of difference. . . . Crucial, heart-breaking, and inspiring.” —Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She’s Not There and Stuck in the Middle with You
