While I was grading the objective question section of quizzes last night, I also had on in the background Waterworld. Yes, that 1995 post-apocalyptic SF film staring Kevin Costner.
While watching the film, it struck me that the little girl, Enola (played by Tina Majorino), was just like Lilly (from my novel Flank Hawk) would've been as a child--spunky attitude and willingness to express her opinion (except Lilly obviously could swim).
