Book Review: Lucy Doesn’t Wear Pink by Nancy Rue

Synopsis (from the back cover): Growing up is hard when you don’t have a mother—but God helps Lucy find her way. Lucy is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything—including God. Understandably, especially after an accident killed her mother, blinded her father, and turned her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper—who insists on Bible study along with homework—to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be. Lucy’s bossy, career-minded Aunt Karen thinks eleven-year-old Lucy needs a woman’s influence. Enter Inez—a housekeeper with a will as strong as Lucy’s—and her granddaughter Mora, a girly-girl who is Lucy’s polar opposite. Will the girls ever find common ground? Inez just might have the answers when she teaches them the story of Ruth and Naomi.

Age: 9 or 10

Inappropriate content: Very little, if any.

My thoughts: Great book for tweens! I also love the sequels.

Sequels: Lucy Out of Bounds; Lucy’s Perfect Summer; and Lucy Finds Her Way.
