Here’s Lily by Nancy Rue is about your typical 6th grade girl who is dealing with teasing and self-consciousness. She struggles with bullies and even family joking. When Lily is feeling down about herself she gets a little boost from a modeling agency that teaches her to do the best with what you have. This concept helps her along to achieving self-confidence and even forming a club to help her friends with their self-confidence. A tragic incident occurs that makes the whole family realize they all could be a little friendlier towards each other especially Lily, whom conquers her self-esteem issues and comes out the victor.
I really loved this book and cannot wait for my daughters to read it. I feel like it is very relatable to my girls I know the character Lily faces the same issues my girls have come home from school complaining about. I love how the book is very clean and throughout the book Lily is trying to figure where God fits into what makes her feel good in life. I read this book in one day; it’s a very easy book to read. Lily is very relatable and the book left me wanting to get more books about Lily. It teaches kids that you may not always be able to stop teasing but you can always feel good about yourself no matter what.
