Item description for Rough & Rugged Lily V9 (Young Women Of Faith) by Nancy Rue...
Overview After asking for a great deal of camping and survival gear for Christmas, Lily discovers that ingenuity can be more helpful than quantity when she and her family become stranded in a winter storm on their way to their mountain cabin.
Publishers Description 'Lily’s looking for adventure, and the great outdoors is just the place to find it! Convinced she’ll become the next famous outdoorswoman, Lily asks her parents for tons of camping and survival gear for Christmas. But little does she know she’s headed for an adventure she’ll never forget. When Lily and her family are stranded in the worst storm ever on the way to a mountain cabin for Christmas, survival becomes the name of the game—in more ways than one. It’s like their very own “Swiss Family Robinson” adventure—minus the pirates, the shipwreck, the animals, and stuff. In the end Lily learns it’s not important what and how much you get, it’s how you handle what you have and being grateful for it.'

Reviews - What do customers think about Rough & Rugged Lily V9 (Young Women Of Faith)?
Another great Lily book!!!! Apr 27, 2005
Lily Robbins is now into becoming Outdoor Woman- and she's sure she can do it if she gets the camping gear she wants for Christmas. However, her parents are fed up with all the materilism of Christmas, and decide to take the family to a cabin to spend the holiday.
The plans take a turn, however, when a car wreck forces to them to stay in a high school gym with several other families. When a little girl gets in danger, will Lily be able to help her?
Parents of children 9 and under may want to use caution with this book, as there is a unwed teenage mother. However, Lily is a lovable heroine- an "everykid", yet very much herself. The lesson about materilism is well presented and made me think hard.
This belongs in every preteen's collection.
A Good Book with A Good Idea Sep 22, 2002
"Rough and Rugged Lily" is the second book I've read where the author points out how secularized Christmas in America has become. ... In "Rough and Rugged Lily" Lily and her family prepare for Christmas...so they think. The last straw comes when Lily and her brothers hand thier extra long Christmas lists and Lily's father overhears Lily and her friends commenting on how they'll get everything they hope for during the holiday season. For Lily, its camping gear so she can go on the Junior Youth Group Camping trip in the mountains, where she hopes to camp and learn about how Jesus and his disciples lived back in the Bible times. But Lily and her brothers are in for a surprise: their parents have different Christmas ideas in mind. First, there will be no tree, no fancy feast, no church candlelight service, no store bought presents. The Robbins family is headed out to an isolated cabin...free of the world, but with stipulations on what every family member can bring. Lily and her brothers are angry at their parents for "ruining" Christmas, and their parents become surprised at how selfish their children have become. But God has other plans for the Robbins family, whose van is run off the road during the worst snowstorm to hit North Carolina in years. The Robbins family ends up stranded in their van until help comes. But the help isn't what they expected: A school gym full of other stranded motorists, hardly any food in the place, and the nastiest person Lily has ever met in her life. Lily and her brother Art befriend a girl named Torie and her sister named Angel. Between the power outages, the lack of Christmas anywhere, the lack of food and so forth, Lily and her family experience a Christmas different from any they have ever known. Lily and her brothers learn a secret about Torie and her mom that causes them to rethink some of their morals. But Christmas for the Robbins family couldn't have been better. I won't tell you if they end up at the cabin or not. This book will offend you at first, leaving you to think that the Robbins family is doing something bad. But throughout the book, Rue explains the story very well, and it is easy to feel what Lily feels thoughout the story. Lily almost seems real, as do everyone else, which is one of the things I like about Nancy Rue's work. ... I higly recommend the two books [this and the companion]together...one for easy reading, the other to explain what Rue is talking about ...
