In a nutshell: Lily must stand up for herself and her friends--because she promised her father, and because it's the right thing to do.
Shy, eleven-year-old Lily promised her dad before he passed away that she would try speaking up five times. But now, “Strive for Five” feels impossible, especially as she enters public school for the first time. However, when Lily and her new friends are bullied, she discovers that staying silent is no longer an option.
With snarky commentary from Libro, the actual book, who guides readers through this poignant tale, National Book Award-winning author Kathryn Erskine tackles grief, change, and the struggle to let your voice be heard.
