Book Review: Here’s Lily

Here's Lily by Nancy RueTitle: Here’s Lily {The Lily Series}

Author: Nancy Rue

Grow with the spirited, sometimes awkward, but always charming Lily as she learns what real beauty is.

In this fun, entertaining story, readers meet awkward sixth grader Lily Robbins who, after receiving a compliment about her looks from a woman in the modeling business, becomes obsessed with her appearance and with becoming a model. As she sets her sights on winning the model search fashion show, she exchanges her rock and feather collection for lip gloss, fashion magazines, and a private “club” with her closest friends. But when the unthinkable happens the night before the fashion show, Lily learns a valuable lesson about real beauty.

This best-selling, biblically based fiction series for girls—with a fresh new look and updated content—addresses social issues and coming-of-age topics, all with the spunk and humor of Lily Robbins as she fumbles her way through unfamiliar territory. As readers come to love Lily and her stories, they’ll also benefit from the companion nonfiction books that will help them through their own growing pains.

 My Review:
I loved this book. Often we find books for tween girls are about fantasy subjects. Werewolves, vampires, fairies and such. But this book is more realistic. It reminded me of when I was in sixth grade and the insecurities I had and the relationships I dealt with. It is exactly the kind of book I wanted my daughter to read. I want my daughter to realize that the things she is going through and dealing with are the same as other girls her age, and that she will make it through.

*I received a copy of this book to review from BookSneeze, but was not financially compensated in any way. The opinions expressed here are my own.*
