Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids

(Disclosure:  I received this book as a part of the Book Look Bloggers in order to facilitate my review.  All opinions shared are my own.)

A while back I was given the opportunity to review the first book in the Riley Mae series.  Now, I was given the chance to read the second book in this series.  I loved reading this book and will be glad to be able to give it to my niece who loves to read.  I feel good about giving her a book that has value to it and not just another worldly book that they are required to read in school.  This book is an easy read for young girls.  The story line is entertaining and adventurous and will keep the readers involved in it using their imaginations to invision the story in their heads.   The cover picture is nicely done with a modest, yet fashionable girl.  Nothing objectionable about that.

About the book:

If you're gonna run for your life, you gotta wear the right shoes.

Life is rapidly chaining for pre-teen shoe spokesperson Riley Mae.  After the last photo shoot and trek up the Half-Dome in Yosemite, Riley Mae and her Swiftriver friends find themselves in Northwest Montana, the perfect backdrop for a river sandal campaign.  The first problem is a plane malfunction.  Then the rigorous raft training for the "Ready Eddy" river sandal campaign brings up more bumps and bruises.  And given that she is in Montana for a shoe campaign ins tread of back home with her friends, Riley thinks life can't get much worse.  Then she meets Sunday, a 10 year old boy from Kenya, who wrestles fish, battles bears, and tackles leukemia.  And Riley soon learns that life is as unpredictable as the raging waters, which, if she is not careful, will sweep her away and into the hands of the enemy-who is even closer than she thinks.
