Oh my! This book is fantastic! Fans of Harry Potter and Percy Jackson are going to love this one! Trust me, this just could be the next big thing. It’s awesome. It’s geared for middle schoolers (ages 9-12) but even adults will love it. Be sure to stay tuned until the very end because I’m giving away a copy!
It begins with a 12-year-old boy named Jake Herndon. He’s the kind of kid who is trying to figure out who he is and where he belongs. He’s a genius when he wants to be. It’s summer and Jake is anxiously awaiting his seventh grade year at a new school for his new do-over. This all began with his seventh grade sleepover with the new school at a museum. Except it goes completely wrong. An organization invades and takes the night into a shocking swirl of events.
Ok ok. You’re right. I’m not a kid. You’re probably wondering why I’m reviewing these though. Well, these are written by Natalie Grant who just so happens to be one of my favorite singers. Plus, these books are so fun and cute that anyone will love them! In fact, I’m giving away a copy of both books in the series to one lucky winner! Stay tuned until the very end to learn more.
The Glimmer Girls are Maddie, Mia, and Lulu. Maddie and Lulu are 10-year-old twins and Lulu is six. They travel across the country where they discover adventure, mystery, and mischief. Their mother, Gloria Glimmer, plays a similar role to Natalie Grant since she is a famous singer. The girls are smart and sassy but they learn about many lessons along the way. These lessons include being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole more. God is also a huge impact in these stories.
Also, a fun part of this series is that you don’t have to read them in order to know what’s going on. You won’t be confused if you read them out of order because each book takes place in a different country or state. Read the rest of this entry
