I was excited to recieve the book "Here's Lily!" the first in The Lily Series by Nancy Rue. It is a delightful book geared toward the 7 to 11 year old girls in your life. It is the story of Lily who is a normal, awkward 6th grader who has problems with certain kids in her class who tease her. Lily thinks that her Mom pays more attention to the Soccer Team that she coaches than she does to Lily. When a local modeling agency rep shows an interest in her she is hoping that this might be a way to show Shad Shifferdecker that she is beautiful and her Mom that she is important! The lessons she learns in the modeling sessions give her a boost to her ego, but right before the big Fashion Show her face is burned in an accident and she wonders why God would let this happen to her. She doesn't think she can go through with the show, but she finally realizes that what is important is how she looks in God's eyes. She does take part in the show and in the end learns that she is beautiful and important, no matter what others think. A great lesson for young girls to learn!
I was given a copy of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishing Co in return for an honest review.
