Lilly Hill may only be six years old, but she's old enough to need some PRIVACY! Her big brother, Case, has his own room, but she has to share with her mother. Couldn't she just try out a few great ideas--like sleeping in the bathtub or in her mother's closet? After a series of funny failed attempts, Case comes to the rescue with an inventive solution to Lily's privacy dilemma. And Lily sees that accepting some help can solve even the most perplexing of problems.

"Warner keeps the tone light and the focus tight...the childlike first-person narration is written with considerable humor and grace."--KirkusFrom Kirkus Reviews:
Lily, who is six, her brother Casey, twelve, and their mother have moved from a house in New Jersey to a small apartment in Philadelphia. Casey has a space of his own, while Lily has to share a room with her mother. Seeking privacy, Lily attempts to sleep in the bathtub with the chair cushions, but the faucet leaks and the cushions get wet; she then tries to make a cave under the kitchen table that lasts only until a spider takes a walk across her face. Sleeping in the closet doesn't work out much better. Casey provides the solution when he spots a folding screen in a used-furniture store, which the family refurbishes to Lily's satisfaction. Warner keeps the tone light and the focus tight, so readers only know that the family's reduced circumstances are because a ``mean judge'' has sent Lily's father to jail for ``taking stuff that wasn't his.'' In true six-year-old form, Lily's attention is on the problem of privacy, and while a one-chapter predicament has been spun into a novel, the childlike first-person narration is written with considerable humor and grace.
