What's My Best Friend About

Publisher Summary

It’s summer, and Lily spends lots of time at the community pool, where she sees Tamika. Lily decides that Tamika will be her new best friend. Only, Tamika already has a best friend, and no matter how hard Lily tries, she can’t seem to impress Tamika. But without Tamika, who will be Lily’s best friend? With beautiful watercolor art and poignant text, this author and illustrator create a timeless story about the difficulties of finding a friend.
