Lucy Doesn’t Wear Pink by Nancy Rue is about a tomboy named Lucy Rooney who learns more about God through exciting adventures by facing what she dislikes most. Lucy does not like pink, almost as much as she dislikes her aunt, who wants her to leave her blind father and come live with her, plus wants to help transform Lucy into a woman, known to Lucy as being a girly girl. She refuses, digging deeper into her dream of starting a real soccer team with her best friend, J.J. When she tries, she is stopped by her new teacher, Mr. Auggy, who requires for her to let other kids play, but they are the kids that Lucy believes hates her because she is not Hispanic. She is also having trouble at home with a new housekeeper who requires her to do a Bible study with her girly girl granddaughter, dealing with missing her mother who died when she was little, and finding a way to reconcile with J.J. who is going through a hard time and decides to dislike her. Will Lucy overcome her obstacles and sort through the lies? Will she fulfill her dream of becoming a soccer team captain? Find out in this amazing book! I really enjoyed the blend and contrast of characters and how the author describes so vividly and wonderfully how Lucy and readers may feel.
