Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post. 




About the Glimmer Girls series:
Readers will join twins Mia and Maddie, and their little sister, Lulu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and mischief along the way.  Together with their father, famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny, Miss Julia, the smart and sassy sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.

About London Art Chase:
In London Art Chase, the first title in the new Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, readers meet 10-year-old twins Mia and Maddie and their adorable little sister, LuLu. All the girls are smart, sassy, and unique in their own way, each with a special little something that adds to great family adventures.

There is pure excitement in the family as the group heads to London for the first time to watch mom, famous singer Gloria Glimmer, perform. But on a day trip to the National Gallery, Maddie witnesses what she believes to be an art theft and takes her sisters and their beloved and wacky nanny Miss Julia, on a wild and crazy adventure as they follow the supposed thief to his lair. Will the Glimmer Girls save the day? And will Maddie find what makes her shine?

Ages 9-12

About A Dolphin Wish:
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 Twist, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
In A Dolphin Wish a three-night stop in the city of San Diego seems like it might be just the break the girls need—lovely weather and great sights to see. That is until they hear animal handlers at “Watery World” talking about the trouble they’ve been having keeping the animals in their habitats. Mia and her sisters cannot resist a challenge and they talk Miss Twist into another visit to the educational amusement park to search for clues as to what or who is helping the animals escape.

My Review:
The kids and I are not even half-way through the first book at this point, but can already tell that we love the Glimmer Girls series!  I'm loving the connection that the family has, the personalities of all the characters, and the general feel of the book as we read it together.  I even feel like my daughter and I can relate to one of the girls, Maddie. I'm seeing my son relate to her as well and her love for art.

I didn't think that my 8 year old son would be too interested in listening to the Glimmer Girls books, being that it's about girls, but he is just as interested as my 9 year old daughter.  He even asked that I keep reading longer the other night!  My daughter has already mentioned wanting to read the rest of the books.  I know we haven't even gotten to the most exciting part of London Art Chase yet, so for my kids to be this excited about it already really says something for the entertainment value of this book!

The kids and I all highly recommend the Glimmer Girls series!  While I'd mainly recommend Glimmer Girls to preteen girls, parents (and possibly some young brothers) will enjoy these books too!

Buy it!
London Art Chase and A Dolphin Wish can currently be purchased on amazon.com for $7.32 each. What a great deal!  The Glimmer Girls books are also available for Kindle at the price of $5.99.
