Lily's Crossing By: Patricia Reilly Giff
Lily Mollahan, Gram (Grandmother), and Poppy (Dad) are going to Rockaway by the Atlantic Ocean for summer break like usual. It's Lily's birthday and Poppy has a special treat. He spends lots of money to tag along the piano, which Lily has pretended to love because her mother loved it (who has passed away). Lily was so excited to leave it for the summer until now.

Lily's best friend Margret has bad news, she has to move far away for the war near a factory. Before she moves she gives Lily the best present yet, the key to her house. Now there is no one in Rockaway Lily's age. Worse yet Poppy has to go overseas to the war.
