Miracle in Music City by Natalie Grant
Twins, Mia and Maddie and younger sister Lulu are hot on the case of another mystery! The girls' mom, who is famous singer, Gloria Glimmer, is setting up an auction at the Grand Ole Opry to help raise money for the homeless. When one of the priceless guitars goes missing, the Glimmer Girls immediately get to work gathering clues to solve the mystery.
There's a lot of positive messages going on in this book. First, I love how the author incorporated helping the less fortunate. She explains it in a way children can understand, and even gives some examples of how someone can help a person who is homeless.
Second, there's also a smaller story going on with the girls' friends from school. The girls must learn how to properly deal with jealousy and sensitivity to someone else's feelings.
Honestly, I hope Natalie Grant writes a dozen more books in the Glimmer Girls series. It's so refreshing to see a book for young girls that has role models my daughters can look up to.
This book is aimed for girls between the ages of 8 and 12. I rate it as 5 stars.
