She is your average 7-8 year old. She is intriguing, curious and she sometimes doesn't care about the rules and regalements because she knows about them but to her she still thinks about playing, laughing and having fun.
She brings in a way, some sort of relief when ever she comes into the picture because she is balancing the story out. In a way Lily is an anchor, while the imagination ship is sailing, she comes in and puts a little reality into the story to keep it re latable to the people reading it.
The reason I appreciate Lily is because she is the little piece of normality in this entire world of hulla-ballu. She keeps thinks normal around her brother and doesn't treat him as if her were different, as if he would have gotten a comment assignment. She still thinks the world they live in is all fun and games because she still has the innocent child blind fold on. She does not know how to distinguish pain from happiness, she hasn't had the chance to distinguish pain form happiness.
