A great conclusion to a great series: "Light Up New York" by Natalie Grant


In the fourth book of the Glimmer Girls series, twins Mia and Maddie, along with their little sister, Lulu, set out with their family to travel to the Big Apple, New York City! Their famous singer mom, Gloria Glimmer, is set to perform at the Times Square in a benefit concert seeking to bring awareness to teen homelessness, and her family is excited to be joining her on the trip along with their wonderful nanny, Miss Julia. But soon the girls find themselves experiencing a whole lot more than the wonder of New York in winter as they set out to solve the mystery of the Snow Angel!

My tween daughters have loved each book of the Glimmer Girls novels so far, and this one was no exception. Indeed, they couldn't decide who would get to read the book first! They feel like they have a lot in common with these sisters, and as a parent I appreciate that this book deals with the issue of sibling rivalry in a way that my own children could relate to. The interaction between the children and their parents is also respectful and sets a good examples for readers. My daughters found the book very entertaining, and my oldest read it through in one sitting. I love the fact that my girls are eager to read good Christian fiction like this, full of good morals, characters they grow to care about, and interesting plot lines. So much reading material now a days can be questionable, but parents can be rest assured that their children are in good hands reading "Light Up New York" and the previous books in the series as well.

My daughters give this book a high rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, and have told me they wish that Natalie Grant would write 10 more books about these Glimmer Girls!
