Lucy Doesn't Wear Pink - A Book Review

Today I'll be reviewing the first book in the Lucy series, Lucy Doesn't Wear Pink.

Name: Lucy Doesn't Wear Pink by Nancy Rue 

Description: Meet Lucy Rooney, a motherless tomboy with an inquisitive mind, a strong will, and a straight-forward approach, who knows every inch of the small and dusty New Mexico town in which she lives with her blind father. She is constantly searching for the “why” in everything. Sometimes it helps answer her questions, and sometimes it just gets her into trouble.

Hated, Liked, or Loved?: Loved 

How long of a read?: It took me half a day, but I'm a very fast reader. 

My Age Recommendation: Girls 10+ 

Thoughts: This book was really good! It's about a girl who lost her mother and has a blind father. She lives in a small town in New Mexico. She is a total tomboy and she loves soccer. 
And she's blonde! SHE ISN'T A MEAN GIRL WHO IS BLONDE! SHE'S A NICE, OUTGOING, HEADSTRONG GIRL WHO IS BLONDE! AND SHE ISN'T DUMB OR SISSY! 
Sorry. 
Why I would recommend this book for girls 10+ instead of 8+ is because first the reading level and second it hints at child abuse. 
**SPOILER** 
It happened to one of Lucy's friends. His father kept hitting him and yelling - it got really bad. So Lucy's friends had to come over to their house if his dad started yelling, and Lucy's dad had to call the sheriff and her friend's dad got put in jail for his temper and child abuse. :( 
**NO MORE SPOILERS** 

Overall, this was a very good book and I would give it four and a half stars out of five!

  1. I read the first 2 books a long time ago. I enjoyed them, but they are definitely just for girls.
