Book review disclosure.

Lena In The Spotlight #2
Juvenile Fiction

Eleven-year-old Lena Daniels’ summer of Hollywood starlets and movie filming alongside her favorite singer, Mallory Winston, is over. School will be back in full swing, and it seems as though life might just pick up where it left off—with volleyball games, homework, and her best friends.

But just as she begins to wonder if her summer was all just a dream, her world is turned upside down . . . again! The movie Above the Waters premiers, the previews seem to be splattered on every television and radio channel, and everyone knows her name. Her classmates, strangers, and even her friends are starting to treat her differently, and everywhere she turns she’s being asked for an autograph, a picture, or a hug.

Lena is just figuring out how to manage her new fame at home when she finds out she's hitting the road on a two-week bus tour to further promote the film. Traveling across the country with Mallory and her band—with the surprise addition of her whole family joining them for a week—Lena experiences adventures and challenges she never expected, while learning to step outside of her comfort zone and follow the path God has for her life. She learns that saying yes to God may not always be easy, but will take her further than she ever imagined!

This Faithgirlz series titled Lena in the Spotlight, written by Alena Pitts, star of The War Room and tween blogger of For Girls Like You, and co-written with her mother, editor and author, Wynter Pitts, is a reflection of Alena’s own life experiences as she reaches for the stars and keeps her faith in balance.

My Thoughts

Day Dreams & Movie Screens may be the most anticipated book in our family this year. My oldest granddaughter devoured Hello Stars, which is the first book in the series, and couldn't wait to read more about the charming Lena Daniels.

If you've read Hello Stars you know that Lena was cast in a Hollywood movie alongside her favorite music star, Mallory Winston. Well the movie is finished and cast is going on a bus tour to promote the film. As the story unfolds Lena has to cope with this newfound stardom. For the most part she does it with grace but there are challenges as well. Especially dealing with friends that aren't quite sure how to treat you now that you're famous.

As an adult I really like this series for young girls. It's realistic but still has an element of entertainment. While your girl isn't likely to become a Hollywood movie star there are still important lessons that can be learned from this story. The most important one is that it is imperative to always trust God and allow Him to lead you down the path that He has chosen.

I would highly recommend this series for tween girls. It is written as a series so to get the most out of it I would suggest reading the books in order. The third book is scheduled to come out in April of 2018. Not sure how I'm going to break that news to my grand girl!
