Riley Mae and the Rock Shocker Trek by Jill Osborne

About the Book:

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

Riley Mae Hart loves sports and action — so when the Swiftriver Shoe Company offers her a contract to be the spokesperson for their new outdoor sport collection, she jumps at the chance. Soon she’s appearing in commercials and magazine ads, and every girl in town wants to wear Riley Mae shoes.
Well, except for Riley.
 Because walking in those shoes means missing out on softball season, making her best friend, TJ, mad, and embarrassing her new friend, Rusty. It also means sneaking around, hiding, and keeping secrets — because something isn’t quite right at Swiftriver.
But a contract’s a contract, so Riley laces up her “Rock Shocker” hiking boots for a climb up Half Dome in Yosemite. Will they be the right shoes to get her back on solid ground?

My Thoughts:

I'm always on the lookout for good books to recommend to teens and preteens.  And I get a lot of questions from parents, wanting recommendations for books they don't need to have concerns with.

So it feels great to be able to say that any book published by Zonderkidz (Zondervan Publishing) is a book you can trust.  "Riley Mae and the Rock Shocker Trek" begins a new series in the Faithgirlz line of books called "The Good News Shoes Series".

Riley Mae is feisty and filled with faith, and devotion to her family and friends.  Jill Osborne has added a hint of mystery to an engaging story, and crafted some fun characters for preteen and teen girls to get to know.

This is just one aspect of my job as a book reviewer that I really get a kick out of...getting to read books for all ages, in search of good quality.  My thanks to my friends at Zondervan Publishing for my advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"Riley Mae and the Rock Shocker Trek" is perfect summer reading, and I highly recommend this new series!

Happy Reading!
