Book Review #83 - Riley Mae And The Ready Eddy Rapids By Jill Osborne

Synopsis:


If you’re gonna run for your life,
you gotta wear the right shoes.
Life is rapidly changing for pre-teen shoe spokesperson Riley Mae. After escaping near disaster at the top of Half Dome in Yosemite, Riley, her family, and her Swiftriver co-workers fly to a secret hideout in Northwest Montana. But when the plane’s malfunction leads to a rough landing, Riley wants nothing more than to return to friends, church, and home. Then she meets Sunday, a ten-year-old boy from Kenya who wrestles fish, battles bears, and tackles leukemia. While her rigorous raft training for the marketing campaign brings a few bumps and bruises, Riley now feels up for the challenge.
Everything looks as bright as the glistening fool’s gold on her “Ready Eddy” river sandals, but everything is not as it seems. 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 an enemy who is even closer than she thinks.



My Take On This Book:

The book contains 55 short chapters within 252 pages, that are on a child’s level and easy to understand.  Riley Mae is just an ordinary 12 year old girl when she gets the opportunity of a lifetime and her own line of shoes! But being famous is a lot harder than Riley ever thought and most of the time she finds herself wishing she never signed that contract in the first place. My granddaughter is just starting to read chapter books so I was so excited to be given the offer to read and review this book, because now she has another chapter book to tackle. 

I received this book for free from Thomas Nelson part of the Book Look review bloggers program, for my honest and un-biased opinion.

I gave it *****
