This book is a fun read whether you're 12 or 40. There are underlying messages in the story, but it's not preachy. It's well written to the point where you almost feel like you're there with Lucy watching everything unfold. This book offers a lot of "perspective".

I knew the second I started this book that this was a book for kids younger than I, but I couldn't resist digging into this book. Quite frankly, I loved it. I loved the character Lucy who reminded me of my sister so much. The story was well written and the child-like faith of Lucy shows how faith is supposed to be. Completely trustful. I also saw myself in Lucy like when she always tries to figure out how to fix something and then go to God when she can't. Inez's response was dead on and insightful. For any parent that wants to mix faith with fiction for their kids, I highly recommend this book and any like it

Because my daughter's reading level is much higher than her maturity level, I often read books in an effort to find ones that are appropriate for her. I thought this one was great, but it does deal with several "heavy" issues: Lucy's mom is dead, racial tensions between Hispanics and non-Hispanics, child abuse (though it is not called this in the book so I'm not sure a child who hasn't dealt with that would pick up on it), and disability. That said, the book itself is not heavy and I felt it touched on these issues in a way that is appropriate for a variety of ages. I like that it has a bible story tied in and discussed in a personalized/ down to earth way (Ruth). I also like that the Christian aspect isn't overpowering -- its more novel than Christian book. I look forward to reading the next book.

I've not read this but am passing along the input of my 9-year-old daughter (and her review should count more than mine!). She's a soccer player, so had more of a connection to the story than non-soccer players might, but she thought it would be interesting for non-soccer players, too. It held her attention well and seemed age-appropriate for girls 9 and up. I had a hard time getting her to put it down when she hit the final chapter; she had to stay up past bedtime to finish. And once finished, she was imploring me to buy "Lucy Out of Bounds". I guess recommendations don't get much better than the readers begging for another book in the series!

Other input:
* "It's really good."
* "It has a happy ending."
* "It's very realistic."

I like these books for my 12 year old daughter. We looked for something for her to read that would be good for her moral.
