Eleven-year-old Lena Daniels’ summer of Hollywood starlets and movie filming alongside her favorite singer, Mallory Winston, is over. School will be back in full swing, and it seems as though life might just pick up where it left off—with volleyball games, homework, and her best friends.

But just as she begins to wonder if her summer was all just a dream, her world is turned upside down . . . again! The movie Above the Waters premiers, the previews seem to be splattered on every television and radio channel, and everyone knows her name. Her classmates, strangers, and even her friends are starting to treat her differently, and everywhere she turns she’s being asked for an autograph, a picture, or a hug.

Lena is just figuring out how to manage her new fame at home when she finds out she's hitting the road on a two-week bus tour to further promote the film. Traveling across the country with Mallory and her band—with the surprise addition of her whole family joining them for a week—Lena experiences adventures and challenges she never expected, while learning to step outside of her comfort zone and follow the path God has for her life. She learns that saying yes to God may not always be easy, but will take her further than she ever imagined!

This Faithgirlz series titled Lena in the Spotlight, written by Alena Pitts, star of The War Room and tween blogger of For Girls Like You, and co-written with her mother, editor and author, Wynter Pitts, is a reflection of Alena’s own life experiences as she reaches for the stars and keeps her faith in balance.

Overall Rating
God knows how to take care of us and he does it very well. Even when we think he may have made a terrible mistake, especially when things don't go as we had hoped or planned. Lena is learning this firsthand. She is exhausted and fearful but knows God doesn't make mistakes especially when things seem harder than they should be.

The Faithgirlz series is a great series for tweens and young teens. It helps girls see their worth in God's eyes. It keeps their focus where it needs to be with inspiring stories and encouraging and uplifting words.
