Riley Mae and The Sole Fire Safari by Jill Osborne
In "Riley Mae and The Sole Fire Safari", Riley Mae is on another adventure! This time she is headed to Kenya with her mom, the Swiftwater team, and her good friends: Faith, Hope and Grace. Riley is having a fantastic time in Kenya! She's making new friends, trying new foods and learning what life is like all the way across the world! But at the same time, Riley misses her dad and her crazy little brother! When will she get to go home?
Throughout the weeks Riley is in Africa she learns a lot about herself, and most importantly, what God is trying to teach her. By the end of the trip, Riley even has a good idea of what she wants to be when she grows up!
There are so many reasons why I love this book series! I love that Riley is a strong role model for young girls. I don't have to worry about what my daughter is reading when she reads this series. Riley is an average 13 year old girl, but she doesn't obsess over boys like a lot of tween books I see. It's refreshing to see a girls' book with morals and values.
