The Secret Life of Bees

What do you think about Lily's choosing to lie to the boatwrights about her history and name?

Why is she doing it? Do you think it is wise? Why or why not?

Lily comes from an abusive home. She does not want to be sent back to her father T. Ray. I don't think Lily wants them to know who her mother was as well.
