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 Julia, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
In this fourth book in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, the Glimmer family is headed to the Big Apple—New York City! Gloria has been asked to perform a concert in Times Square and the whole family joins her. Miss Julia immediately starts planning a sightseeing trip for the sisters that will be better than all the rest, but plans never turn out exactly as they imagine when the Glimmer girls are involved. So what happens when sibling rivalry, random acts of kindness, and a little mystery all meet up at some of the most famous sights in New York City?

My thoughts: (reviewed by Jenna)  First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, LIGHT UP NEW YORK is the fourth book in the Glimmer Girl series. The books are stand-alone, but if you  like to read books in order, they are: London  Art Chase, A Dolphin Wish, Miracle in Music City, and Light Up New York.

I really enjoyed reading this book and found it amazing how Ms. Grant is so excellent at characterization.  Maddie is just like me, Mia is like my older sister, and Lulu is like my little sister. Just like us. :)  

I loved the way they used the different personalities to figure things out and do things together. The book felt very very real, because I could imagine me and my sisters in the story. 

There is a mystery in it, but it isn't a real scary one. It is a really cool book. I loved it.  Highly recommended for tween girls.
