More remarkably, Lily in all her struggle to find natural beauty as a teen finds God in an amazing way. As she defies her parent’s suggestions and advice to seek natural beauty within God and not in a modeling job, Lily finds other means to disguise her inner pain. The many times that Shad made hurtful comments, she would hide within her modeling tasks. She would feel confident, pretty and proud as a fashion model. But she would put God to the side, disregarding that God made everyone special in every way.
But it’s not until Lily suffers an unexpected accident that she realizes that beauty is within oneself. And she begins to completely have faith in God. She realizes that beauty is in her inner self. It is her choice whether to accept or not other people’s comments. It is her choice to be confident in the way she is and who she is – not to be someone else.
In “Here’s Lily” by Nancy Rue, parents and teens can both find a wonderful way to communicate the pains of growing up as a teenager. Parents can reminisce about their time as a teen. And teens can seek advice in those parents and caregivers that want the very best for them. This is a wonderful fictional book for children between the ages of 7 and up. It is also part of The Lily book series. ISBN: 978-1400319497.
