Throughout the book, Lily makes a list of her problems and solutions to the problems. One of her worst problems is lying. She also has a vivid imagination.
This theme is relatable to many readers but especially to those who have a family member overseas who is protecting our rights and freedom. In regards to the style, the author captures the flavor of the time period through speech patterns of the era. For example, when Albert speaks, he sometimes does not understand what Lily means and asks for clarification at times because English is his second language and his cultural norms differ from those of Lily.
