Here's Lily by Nancy Rue Review + Giveaway

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.

Lily is picked on and teased at school, but not alone.  Others are as well.  She's gangling and has wild orange hair but has a sweet manner.  When a model agency comes to her school and picks her to take some modelling lessons, Lily is shocked but pleased. She learns how to have confidence at her lessons and to find God's place not only in modelling but in her life.  She takes some of her lessons learned back to school to try and teach others.  

A book geared toward younger readers but with big lessons.  The writing is strong and seamless and really holds the reader's attention.  Lily has some mishaps and learns some big lessons. Teasing and bullying is wrong and Here's Lily takes a strong stance against it.  Great characters, fun, educating and a way to learn how to find God in your love, I recommend this book to any young reader! Definitely add this one to your summer reading list!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
