Heather Barlow made a missionary trip to Africa; when health precludes her from returning a second time, her sister Amber goes in her place. Narrator Christina Moore is particularly convincing as their mother, effectively conveying maternal emotion and caring. McDaniel's story covers vital issues such as poverty, social justice, and the striking contrast between life in the U.S. and Africa. Moore enhances these important concepts with her controlled and never sentimental delivery. This piece of outstanding young adult fiction is also excellent for anyone interested in learning about life in a third-world country. S.G.B.
