Lila is terribly disappointed until the cousins make her a surprise: a big banner for their "best cousin" Lila!

Inspired by the author''s own large, diverse family, When the Cousins Came is a sensitive story about insecurity, hosting, and friendship.

When the Cousins Came was inspired by her own large, diverse family, and by the similarities and differences she uncovered when visiting with her own cousins. B...
