The Lily Series: Here's Lily! by Nancy Rue

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Welcome to the wonderful world of Lily Robbins! In this fun, first story in a series that has sold over one million copies, you'll meet the awkward sixth-grader named Lily. After receiving a compliment about her looks from a high-powered woman in the fashion industry, Lily obsesses over becoming a model, setting her sights on winning the 'model search' fashion show. She packs away her rock and feather collection in exchange for pictures of teen models and fashion magazines. But when the unthinkable happens the night before the fashion show, Lily learns a valuable lesson about real beauty.

Goodreads Summary

We have all let a compliment go to our head or fixated on a comment someone made to us.  Sixth grade Lily gets sucked into an obsession with fashion and her looks.  She stops valuing what really matters and begins to question what is truly important.  Lily looks to God to learn the answers to her questions and becomes stronger as a result.

    The best part about any book is the underlying messages.  Here’s Lily is full of moments of clarity and realization.  Rue incorporates these messages into the book with an easy flow.  Readers are not hit over the head with a message, but come to the realizations with Lily.  Interesting too are the companion books that offer advice and answer questions that girls often have when experiencing adolescence.
