Saturday, January 23, 2010
Today's story is reviewed by a guest! A man in my Bible Study group read this story in order to understand his granddaughter's world better and have some idea of what books he might recommend to her. Here's his review:

#1 - Here's Lily by Nancy Rue, Zonderkiz, 2000 AND Thomas Nelson 2012
Here's Lily! (Young Women of Faith: Lily Series, Book 1) 
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls AND BOYS 11-15
Subject: Identity in Christ
Summary: Who is Lily? Her dad is an amazing English professor. Her mom is a great coach. Her older brother is destined to be an incredible musician. Her younger brother is an impressive athlete. But who is Lily? This book is the beginning of a 14 book series of Lily trying out various things to see who God wants her to be.
Notes: Impression: Easy read, compelling, engaging, good story line, lots of reality, life lessons well documented, had to read straight through
Author has a good handle on young kids problems. Struggles of family & school are well documented. Lots of reality. I was drawn into the story emotionally. Would HIGHLY recommend this for boys and girls. Life lessons can be learned for all. Boys need to see that they should never treat a girl this way.
Rating A++
Recommendation Scale: 5
