Riley Mae and the Sole Fire Safari By Jill Osborne Review

 The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through BookLook Bloggers.

Train your feet: Ignite your soul.

Pre-teen shoe model Riley Mae laces up her flaming orange Sole Fire running shoes for another ad campaign in the third book of the Faithgirlz! Good News Shoes series.Kenya, Africa ie the perfect place for runners to train, with its high elevation and encouragement from members of the famous Kalenjin tribe. It s also a great hiding place for Riley and her Swift river friends from enemies back in the United States, but for how long? Adjusting to African culture is difficult, but by doing work she s not accustomed to and by spending time with the kids and the Christian women in the village, Riley finds herself growing stronger physically, and praying expectantly for ways that God can use her to spread the Good News. Her prayers are answered in exciting and startling ways when Riley meets an orphaned girl seeking answers at a children s home in Nairobi, but also when an error in judgment causes her to stumble into a surprise meeting with the enemy."

Cassandra's Review-  This book is part of a series.   I would recommend picking them all up. You do not have to read them in order as this makes a great standalone if needed.  I like the message that comes with each story and the way that the author presents it.  The lead character is very easy to relate to and the kids enjoy her very much. I would recommend this book to kids of all ages, yet the really tiny ones might not yet understand.  It is so nice to find a book that the whole family can enjoy no matter what age and not have to worry about what is going into the kids mind.
