Book Review of Here's Lily by Nancy Rue

 Nancy Rue's book, Here's Lily, tells the story of Lily Robbins, a 6th grader who gets teased a lot at school and is embarrassed by her height, pale skin, red hair and big lips.  When Lily is invited to join a modeling class, her parents allow her to join, but tell her she has to look for where God in the experience.  However, Lily becomes obsessed with her appearance and modeling.  A tragic accident will change everything though for Lily and her family, and Lily will learn that real beauty is on the inside.

I enjoyed this book.  The author did a good job of making the book appropriate for the current "times."  I think that it so important for young girls to find confidence and realize that despite teasing, they are beautiful and special because they have God on their side.  I loved the idea of having "God-confidence - the confidence in God that allows her to trust in Him no matter what."  I think the idea of "God-confidence" applies not only to young girls, but to all ages.  It was an important reminder for me.  I highly recommend this book!
