Glimmer Girls: Miracle in Music City by Natalie Grant

In this third title in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series by Natalie Grant, Miracle in Music City, the Glimmer Girls are at it again—looking for a mystery to solve. Gloria wants her daughters to learn they aren’t too young to make a difference, so she gets them involved in her annual benefit and auction. But as things often do with the trio of smart and sassy sisters, they get themselves and their nanny Miss Julia involved in a lot more than just helping mom raise money for a worthy and wonderful cause.

In Miracle in Music City, twin sisters Maddie & Mia and their little sister Lulu try to make a difference for their friend Ruby, who is homeless.  Ruby's dad is not the same since he had to sell his guitar to provide money to feed his family.  This lead the sisters into a mystery about a famous musician's stolen guitar.  
My 10 year old daughter read this book and loved it!  She now wants to read the other two books in the series.  She loved how the girls shared her love of music, liked to dance, and were her age.  She enjoyed the mystery and humor in the book. 
I loved that the book was about girls who had younger girl interests and were not trying to be sophisticated young women.  The book moved along, and I enjoyed learning about Nashville and the music industry.  

This books is marked as intended for girls 8-12 years old and I felt that was an accurate assessment.  Having two girls in this age range, I can say this is a hard age to find books for where the story is about girls their age who are are not rude to their parents and are respectful to each other.  I can recommend his book.
