I am back with another book review. Riley Unlikely caught my attention because of its’ book cover, to be honest. I like the teal color. Anyhow, the story is about a young teenager who goes to Kenya, Africa for volunteer work. Riley overcomes difficulties and cultural differences, but is touched by her encounter with the children she helps. She encounters several miracles in her journey to later provide sanitary supplies, school supplies, and build a home for the children. Later she also finds out about a physical ailment that will affect her life forever. However, she overcomes each obstacle with her faith in God.
Reading this book reminded me of my early days when I used to go on volunteer trips. The first time I watched a anti-human trafficking video was when I was 14. I think having an activist heart influenced many decisions I later made to change the world. Every summer I went on a trip, I can still remember each kid’s smile and tears. It made my life worth living. I highly recommend people to get out of their comfort zone and do something worthwhile. It will change the course of your life.
I give this book 5 out of 5 Bex Stars. Her story is very inspirational and worth reading for those that have somehow lost touch with their purpose in life.
