"Light Up New York" by Natalie Grant

About this book:

  “The Glimmer family is headed to the Big Apple—New York City! Gloria has been asked to perform a concert in Times Square and the whole family joins her. Miss Julia immediately starts planning a sightseeing trip for the sisters that will be better than all the rest, but plans never turn out exactly as they imagine when the Glimmer girls are involved. So what happens when sibling rivalry, random acts of kindness, and a little mystery all meet up at some of the most famous sights in New York City?”

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ for girls with (a) younger sibling(s).}
This really was such a precious book—I love how the previous book’s message of helping the homeless carried into this one & also added about random acts of kindness. Overall, I’ve really enjoyed this series & can see many girls in the target market liking them as well. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
