Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 1/27/2016
Rating

This highly anticipated series is finally here! I am a fan of Natalie Grant and I have been excited to read her new children's series in hopes of sharing it with my grand girls. After reading this first installment I have to admit that I have mixed feelings about it. Most of the book I really liked but there is a part that I did not like at all.

Let me start by telling you what I liked. The three sisters Maddie, Mia, and Lulu are clever and fun yet come across as true siblings (can you say sibling rivalry?). Maddie and Mia are 10-year-old twins. Mia is very outgoing and loves to perform. Maddie is more of an introvert and loves art. Lulu is six and she's a handful.

The family is on a business trip to London where the momma, Gloria Glimmer, is scheduled to do several concerts. While the parents are busy with rehearsals and concerts the girls and their nanny take in the sights of London. I enjoyed the way that facts about the sights were slipped into the dialogue. What a fun way for your girls to learn a little while they are being entertained with a good story.

All in all this is a good read that is sure to keep your daughter's attention. But I would be remiss if I didn't say what disturbed me about the story. I'm about to provide a bit of a spoiler but I am assuming that the parents are reading this review so it shouldn't matter in the scheme of things.

Without giving too many details about the story there is a point in the book where Maddie sneaks out of the hotel by herself and seeks out the art thief. She is a 10-year-old little girl wandering the streets of London. She does eventually meet up with a presumably safe man that helps her. While that is disturbing what made me frustrated was that when all was said and done and Maddie was once again safe with her family, her mother wound up apologizing to Maddie for not paying better attention to her needs. The momma did say that there would be consequences for Maddie's actions but those consequences didn't materialize. Instead the family went to eat ice cream and ride the giant ferris wheel. I really would have preferred a better lesson on self-control and making better decisions to stay safe.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
