Book Reveiw - Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids by Jill Osborne

A Great Adventure and Inspiration Book for Tween Girls.
 
 
As if the adventures in the book “Riley Mae and the Rock Shocker Trek” weren’t enough, we now find in the second of the series, “Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids”,  Riley along with her co-workers from Swift River and family are once again on the run.  This time they are going to a secret hideout in Northwest Montana.  This book starts with a rough landing due to the plane’s malfunction.  About this time Riley wants to return home to her friends and church, but she meets Sunday, a boy from Kenya who is 10 years old and is dealing with leukemia.  Their journey is filled with adventure from wrestling fish, almost being eaten by Herod, the bear,  learning to raft, nearly drowning in the rapids and a bunch of trips to the emergency room, but none of that compares to the danger from the person trying to do them harm. 
This book is the second in the Good News Shoes Faith Girlz Series.  These books are great for young Tween girls.  Although they are filled with adventure, they also are filled with learning to do what is right and what God would have you do along with prayer, faith and reading your Bible.  They talk a great deal about listening to the needs of those around you and not dwelling on yourself. Sunday’s faith is all inspiring as he gives encouragement even though his situation is serious.  From the first page of the first book my nine year old granddaughter was hooked.  She can’t wait to read to read this one.  I am sure as each new book is released it will find its way to her library.  I would highly recommend this to any Tween girl as it also gives inspiration in finding self-confidence and being comfortable with who you are and learning that we all make mistakes, but it is how we deal with them that is important.  I am very impressed with this series. 
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for an honest review.   I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
