Here's Lily -Review

Here's Lily (The Lily Series) 

 Here's Lily by Nancy Rue 
A big thanks to Tommy Nelson Publishing for letting me read this wonderful book. 

Summary from Amazon: 

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.

I can't say enough about this wonderful book that helps young girls realize more than their confidence but helps them discover " God-confidence".  Lily learns throughout the book just what it means to be truly beautiful , that God created each of us differently but he finds each of us beautiful. Lily also learns that what we say  can also be used to bring about beauty or to dim that beauty. I really enjoyed how Lily's parents encouraged her to find God in all the things she did , such as the Modeling Show . It's so important to remember that God needs to be apart of everything we do , and that with him in our lives we can do anything , even face the bullies in the world. I also really loved how Lily became and example to other girls. Lily began to over come her lack of confidence  and others were able to see it . Over all, I would recommend this book to any young girl who needs to be reminded how wonderful she is, that God created her to be a uniquely beautiful  and that God is with you no matter the situation.

Come back tomorrow to check out The Beauty Book ..the companion book for Here's Lily
