Here's Lily by Nancy Rue

When a modeling consultant comes to Lily's school, the last thing that Lily thinks is that she might have the chance to become a model! Her wild hair is what everyone always notices, and it's not exactly something that models are known for. She's excited to learn about beauty, poise, and taking care of herself. Her parents, on the other hand, aren't quite as excited, and wonder if Lily is able to find God in her modeling. Lily isn't sure what that means, and before she has a chance to think about it, she gets sidetracked by dealing with a mean kid in her class who makes other people feel bad. Lily's life has gotten really complicated; is this a chance for her to figure out who she really is?

 Lily is a very likeable character. Yes, she does get up with the whole modeling thing, but her sudden interest comes from a believable place. Less believable to me was the idea of a modeling agent coming to a school under the guise of health, but I'm sure it has happened somewhere at some point. There are some strong messages in this book about standing up for yourself, believing in yourself, and how the important beauty is on the inside. These ideas are woven around the idea of serving God and doing His work on earth. There will be more books in this series, so look for more of Lily's adventures to come.
