Bebette started coming around when Lily Fiore was already too old to indulge in imaginary friendships. First she showed up only sporadically, and then she became Lily's sole companion. Lily was almost nine when she discovered she had a very serious blood disease. It upended her life, and caused her mother and father to move the family from Reverie to Salvation, NY where Salvation Children's Hospital resided. Three years of treatments hadn't yet cured her and she was twelve now. Her friends from Reverie never came to visit, and she was too sick to go to school in her new town. Since discovering she was sick, Lily even stopped being able to fly in her dreams. With her young imaginary friend Bebette's help, Lily embarked on a journey to find herself, even if only in the recesses of her own soul. They say that every journey begins with a single step, but that first step must begin with a question: how will you face the un-mapped roads when you find them? What is your philosophy of life?
