Join twins Mia and Maddie and their sidekick little sister, Lulu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and sometimes mischief along the way. Together with their famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny Miss Julia, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
In this fourth book in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, the Glimmer family is headed to the Big Apple—New York City! Gloria has been asked to perform a concert in Times Square and the whole family joins her. Miss Julia immediately starts planning a sightseeing trip for the sisters that will be better than all the rest, but plans never turn out exactly as they imagine when the Glimmer girls are involved. So what happens when sibling rivalry, random acts of kindness, and a little mystery all meet up at some of the most famous sights in New York City?

Light Up New York by Natalie Grant, A Review This book may be targeted for young girls, but I enjoyed the story too as someone in the grandmother age range. Part of the Glimmer Girls series, this novel can easily stand alone. Twins Maddie and Mia and their younger sister Lulu travel to New York with their mom, who’s a singer, and their dad and nanny. Their adventures in the Big Apple highlight many of New York’s famous places, but the touching story is what wins your heart. The girls struggle to get along and to trust and forgive—things anyone can identify with. The fictional account makes a fun way to learn valuable lessons and to “sightsee.” I recommend it. I received the book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
My thoughts: First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, LIGHT UP NEW YORK is the fourth book in the Glimmer Girl series. The books are stand-alone, but if you like to read books in order, they are: London Art Chase, A Dolphin Wish, Miracle in Music City, and Light Up New York. I really enjoyed reading this book and found it amazing how Ms. Grant is so excellent at characterization. Maddie is just like me, Mia is like my older sister, and Lulu is like my little sister. Just like us. :) I loved the way they used the different personalities to figure things out and do things together. The book felt very very real, because I could imagine me and my sisters in the story. There is a mystery in it, but it isn't a real scary one. It is a really cool book. I loved it. Highly recommended for tween girls.
Light Up New York by Natalie Grant is an amazingly wonderful book for young girls! My daughter couldn't put this book down. She's been waiting for it to come out since reading the 3rd book in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series so when it arrived she was ecstatic! Every time I saw her over the next 2 days it seemed like she was reading. Something I wholeheartedly support! My daughter is 8 and has 2 sisters so she relates to this book extremely well because it's about 3 sisters who seem to find a little mystery where ever they go. This book is just as good as the other 3 books in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series if not better. As a homeschooling Christian mom I highly recommend this book! Light Up New York by Natalie Grant is an excellent book for young girls to read that they will truly fall in love with! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.
