Review of Lucy Doesn't Wear Pink by Nancy Rue

Okay, so this is a book I've read recently. I recommend this book to girls age 9 and up. Though I may be considered to old to read it, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm sure long time fans of Nancy Rue (The Lily and Sophie Series or new readers will love it!

Lucy Doesn’t Wear Pink by Nancy Rue is about a tomboy named Lucy Rooney who learns more about God through exciting adventures by facing what she dislikes most. Lucy does not like pink, almost as much as she dislikes her aunt, who wants her to leave her blind father and come live with her, plus wants to help transform Lucy into a woman, known to Lucy as being a girly girl. She refuses, digging deeper into her dream of starting a real soccer team with her best friend, J.J. When she tries, she is stopped by her new teacher, Mr. Auggy, who requires for her to let other kids play, but they are the kids that Lucy believes hates her because she is not Hispanic. She is also having trouble at home with a new housekeeper who requires her to do a Bible study with her girly girl granddaughter, dealing with missing her mother who died when she was little, and finding a way to reconcile with J.J. who is going through a hard time and decides to dislike her. Will Lucy overcome her obstacles and sort through the lies? Will she fulfill her dream of becoming a soccer team captain? Find out in this amazing book! I really enjoyed the blend and contrast of characters and how the author describes so vividly and wonderfully how Lucy and readers may feel.

So here's my review. More to come!
My next review will be on the Bloodstone Chronicles, a long time favorite of mine.

God Bless,

Sounds like a good book to me, where'd you get it?

@Paris: Cool! It's an awesome book. It's as if Lucy's a real person, not a character.

@Araken: My sister gets Clubhouse, a magazine from Focus on the Family (It's pretty cool for teens too, though it's targeted to the little kiddies). There was a summer reading contest that she did, and we received
the book as a prize. I do own Mrs. Rue's books from other series that I purchased at Lifeway Christian books and a Christian store at my local mall.
