Here’s Lily by 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 Thoughts on This Book
Another awesome YA book for young ladies. Nancy Rue has that special nick for writing books for girls this age, which is so much needed today! I love that Nancy deals with issues that these gals face in real life, which is what makes this book so very awesomely special. And she does it was with such grace and humor.
In this book, Lily doesn’t have a lot of confidence in herself, and with the teasing and abuse she puts up from her friend, that doesn’t help matters at all. But it was when Lily was chosen to take modeling classes that changed everything for her. But then again, she was forced to face issues that would make her second guess herself as well as God. Join Lily, her family and friends as she tackles the issues she faces in this book. You will be glad you did!
If you have tween and teen girls, then you need to get this book for them. The colors, the layout, the topics, the author, its all for the young girls. I can’t stress enough my feelings for having books like this for teens and tweens to read. I’ve seen it first hand, they will read books like this, listed to what the author says, before they will sometimes listen to what their own family says. Thats just what this age child does! You won’t be disappointed with this book!
