Glimmer Girls #3
Miracle in Music City is a book that you and your daughters will love! I had reservations about book 1 and book 2 in this series but I can happily say that I heartily recommend this book. There are all of the things that I liked about the other stories like spunky girls, loving parents that put their trust in God, and a situation that involves a bit of mystery. I'd also like to say that there are no instances of children being in dangerous situations.
In this book the Glimmer family has just returned to their home in Nashville after being on tour with their mother over the summer. Maddie and Mia are so excited to see their best friends Annabeth and Emily. Unfortunately that green-eyed monster named Jealousy chooses to rear its ugly head. All of the girls get their feelings hurt in different ways which is painful but it's also a wonderful learning opportunity. Kuddos to the mommas that gently guided behind the scenes to nudge their daughters towards reconciliation.
The mystery involves The Grand Ole Opry and a very valuable guitar. It was fun to wander the backstage area with the girls and get to know a little bit more about such an iconic place.
A secondary storyline involves the homeless and what we can do to help. I thought this was presented in a very sensitive way. Natalie Grant wrote it with an empathetic voice toward the plight of homelessness, especially children that are caught in this awful situation. I liked the lessons that were inserted into the story. They were presented in a natural way without being soapbox preachy.
If you have a tween girl I recommend this book. It's my favorite of the three by far. It is a part of a series but I think it can easily be read as a stand-alone story. If you would like to read the series however, it does need to be done in order or you will encounter spoilers. There's a fourth book that is slated to come out in January 2017 and I look forward to reading it as well.
