Light Up New York by Natalie Grant

This is a Faithgirlz title, the 4th and final book in Award winning singer Natalie Grant's Glimmer Girls series.
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?
The Glimmer girls go to New York for Light Up New York, an event to help homeless teens. Maddie and Mia make an album  and are also on TV in support of the Light Up New York event while they are there.   The girls work together with their nanny Miss Julia and their sister LuLu to solve the  mystery of  "the snow angel."  They work through sibling rivalry, learn patience, and honesty on their New York trip. The black and white illustrations add nicely to the story.

I was so excited to get  Light Up New York! I enjoyed book number 3 and my my 11 year old daughter had been asking when the next one came out for months. Within 24 hours of the book being in our home my daughter  had the book in her hands and completed reading it.   She absolutely loved the story!   I was thrilled that she was reading something where the characters in the story  were kind to each other and worked out their problems in a civil way.   The parents are respected by their daughters, caring and enjoy their family.  That was refreshing.  I recommend this book.
I received the book from BookLook Blogger. All opinions are my own.
