Lily has a best friend named Reni. Lily is always polite even when people are making fun of her looks. In her head she is always saying how Reni is so cute. She complains in her head about her looks, like her frizzy red hair and how she bites her nails. That is in part due to the other kids saying mean things to her.
The girls all go to the library for beauty tips, The woman named Kathleen is the one talking about it. She picks a volunteer, who turns out to be Lily. She shows the girls how you don't want to use a lot of makeup and how you want to just try and enhance your already beautiful features. She explains how they should stand and walk easier.
