    This review was written for London Art Chase.
    This is a really fun read! Its filled with a tour life, adventure, mystery, and faith all tied into one. If you want a book that will teach your kids about making good choices and trusting in God, youll definitely want to encourage them to read this.

    The girls are just as curious as regular kids are and we learn a lot about other cultures. The questions about the telephone booths in London were a nice touch. I found something new to discover as the pages were turned. There are lots of little lessons such as learning to be brave and the seriousness of running off in London. It was superb and well-done!

    Adventure ensues when three sisters, with nanny-in-tow, tour the streets and squares of London, stumbling upon clues in a quest to solve a mystery. Meet twins Maddie, Mia and their vivacious little sister, Lulu. The "Glimmer Girls are a trio of amusing, lively, sassy siblings and daughters of famous singer, Gloria Glimmer. The girls, along with their producer-father and photo-snapping Nanny, Miss Julia, accompany their mom in London for her performance. Award-winning recording artist Natalie Grant takes readers on a splendid ride through the perspective of these three girls in her first book, London Art Chase, a part of the Glimmer Girls series.

    Maddie, Mia and Lulu entertain young readers by enticing them into their adventures. Visiting the National Gallery with her sisters and nanny, Maddie, one of the ten-year-old twins, glimpses a masterpiece before leaving the museum. While doing so, she spies a man suspiciously removing the painting from the wall of the museum and disappearing into the hidden hallways. Maddie convinces herself she must solve the mystery and reveal the thief. In doing so, she believes she can live out the familys motto: "Glimmer girls glitter and shine, but most of all are kind. Maddie, introverted and reserved, seeks to find her place next to Mias courageous and lively personality and Lulus gregarious presence.

    With three young daughters of her own, Grant undoubtedly writes from intimate knowledge of parenting and understanding the minds of tween girls. She allows each girls unique personality to shine, honoring their diversity of gifts and temperaments. By capturing the questions girls have at this age, Grant reveals their insecurities and search to understand their God-given design.

    Ultimately, the story models young girls interacting with one another and their parents in a respectful and God-honoring manner. Love, grace and forgiveness continuously thread throughout the story in the way the family lives its faith, exemplifies prayer and relies on God in uncertainty. Targeted towards 9-12 year olds, it has a strong appeal to the 8-10 year old girl and may be less interesting for the 11-12 year old.

    This book, by award-winning recording artist Natalie Grant, is the first in the Glimmer Girls series and is a part of the Faithgirlz brand. Twins, Maddie and Mia, and their younger sister Lulu, visit London for the first time. Their mom is a singer and their dad is a musician. While they are performing their concerts, the girls explore London with their nanny. They visit the National Gallery and Maddie thinks she witnesses a painting theft but no one takes her concerns seriously. After seeing the man she thinks is the thief, she leads her sisters and nanny on a chase through London. With all of the misunderstandings and mishaps, can the Glimmer Girls solve the case?

    Natalie Grant has always been one of my favorite Christian music artists. I was excited to see that she published this book series. Knowing that she has three daughters (including twins) makes the story even more fun. With an emphasis on prayer, the Christian message of God hearing us and helping us even with the little things is loud and clear. The message is wholesome, lessons are learned, mentoring is given when needed, and the differences between right and wrong are made clear. There is a time where Maddie runs away to chase the thief all by herself because no one believes her. She ends up being safe and everything turns out okay in the end, however, I would have liked there to be more consequences to her wrong actions. The mom mentions that there will be consequences but what they are was not brought to light. Based on other reviews that I read, this comes up in book two but I thought I would mention it as a disclaimer in case anyone would prefer to know that before letting their child read it. It could possibly be a good discussion moment. I would recommend this book for any young girls who are reading chapter books. My daughter (age 9) was immediately attracted to the cover when it arrived in the mail and she has already started reading it!

    My personal Rating- Three Stars (and a half)

    This was a very cute book with even cuter illustrations and good lessons sprinkled in. I did have to wince at the mentions of an American Girl doll and her stories, since that company has promoted something the Bible speaks against. :(

    While it felt like it was written for younger girls compared to previous Faithgirlz books, this one was cute and I think Pre-Teens will like it! :)



    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    *I received this book for free from the Publisher (Zondervan) for this honest review.

    This review was written for London Art Chase.
    This highly anticipated series is finally here! I am a fan of Natalie Grant and I have been excited to read her new children's series in hopes of sharing it with my grand girls. After reading this first installment I have to admit that I have mixed feelings about it. Most of the book I really liked but there is a part that I did not like at all.

    Let me start by telling you what I liked. The three sisters Maddie, Mia, and Lulu are clever and fun yet come across as true siblings (can you say sibling rivalry?). Maddie and Mia are 10-year-old twins. Mia is very outgoing and loves to perform. Maddie is more of an introvert and loves art. Lulu is six and she's a handful.

    The family is on a business trip to London where the momma, Gloria Glimmer, is scheduled to do several concerts. While the parents are busy with rehearsals and concerts the girls and their nanny take in the sights of London. I enjoyed the way that facts about the sights were slipped into the dialogue. What a fun way for your girls to learn a little while they are being entertained with a good story.

    All in all this is a good read that is sure to keep your daughter's attention. But I would be remiss if I didn't say what disturbed me about the story. I'm about to provide a bit of a spoiler but I am assuming that the parents are reading this review so it shouldn't matter in the scheme of things.

    Without giving too many details about the story there is a point in the book where Maddie sneaks out of the hotel by herself and seeks out the art thief. She is a 10-year-old little girl wandering the streets of London. She does eventually meet up with a presumably safe man that helps her. While that is disturbing what made me frustrated was that when all was said and done and Maddie was once again safe with her family, her mother wound up apologizing to Maddie for not paying better attention to her needs. The momma did say that there would be consequences for Maddie's actions but those consequences didn't materialize. Instead the family went to eat ice cream and ride the giant ferris wheel. I really would have preferred a better lesson on self-control and making better decisions to stay safe.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
