Here’s Lily!

Last night, I put down a copy of The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot in disgust.  It is unbelievable what some people think is appropriate for young girls to read–and it reminded me that I need to be extra vigilant about what Megan picks up at the library because even titles that seem innocent enough sometimes aren’t.  Thankfully, authors like Nancy Rue are writing books that have engaging characters, fun plots, and, more importantly, a focus on God.  Here’s Lily is an updated version of the title of the same name published several years ago.


In Here’s Lily, readers meet the striking character of Lily, a 6th grader who is tall, fair, and has orange, curly hair.  Lily doesn’t have much confidence in herself, until she is chosen to attend a modeling school.  In her classes, Lily learns to have confidence and poise–and to be kind to others.  Lily brings her new knowledge back to school, where she forms a group of girls who are picked on and begins teaching them how to shine, as well.

Through it all, Lily’s parents encourage her to find out where God is in her modeling class.  Unfortunately, it takes a near tragedy to reveal His presence to Lily.  She learns that it isn’t self-confidence that matters, but God-confidence–the confidence in God that allows her to trust in Him no matter what.  Lily finds that if she is trusting in God, it doesn’t matter what people think of her.

I love this book, and can’t wait to get a print copy for my 9 year old Megan.  She will love the fun characters and the great storyline.  And I love that the book focuses, not on who likes who, but on finding God.
