4.5/5 stars: Glorious is unique, inquisitive and an old soul. What teenager takes the time to help her local thrift store owner? Glorious does!
5/5 stars: Glo Ro Saves Best Treasure Chest is told from the perspective of the title character, Glorious Day Roberts, a high school student with an eye for detail that Sherlock Holmes would envy. What is great about this story is that Ms. Wright immerses us in the character of the teenager. Glo is precocious, but she is still a kid and we are reminded of this by the frequent tangents she goes off on – exactly as a normal teenage person does. As she is conducting her investigation, something catches her attention and Glo is momentarily off the case and onto a new train of thought. However, the case is always on her mind, and she is soon back on the trail, and the momentary reprieve actually gives her a clearer view…
Synopsis: 16-year-old Glorious Day Roberts (Glo Ro) is big-haired, dyslexic, and fighting family demons. But she takes those issues in stride, instead focusing on getting to kernels of truth. When her favorite thrift store is in trouble, Glorious knows she has no choice but to turn on her shine, full-blast.
