“Secret photo shoot?”
“Yeah, the one on the river. Riley you are so lucky! I don’t blame you for wanting to be a shoe model instead of playing softball. Oh, and my dad showed me the Ready Eddys. They’re so cute! I’m gonna save up to buy some.”
WHAT was this girl talking about? Secret photo shoot? Ready Eddys?

Summary: What on earth is going on here? No one is telling Riley Mae anything! This running for your life business is not all it’s cracked up to be. As near as she can figure they’re somewhere in Montana hiding from their enemies. And apparently while here Riley Mae is going to do a series of photos promoting a new sandal – a series of photos going do the rapids – including over a waterfall! That’s not all though. All sorts of crazy adventures are happening – a run in with a hungry bear, a missing person search, a mysterious e-mail and a little boy with Leukemia. It’s enough to make Riley Mae quite glad she’s got the right shoes for each adventure!
Notes: The Good News Shoes series introduces a twelve year old girl who really likes softball and cool shoes. So when she gets an offer to be a spokesgirl for a company marketing athletic shoes for girls, she jumps in headfirst, not knowing she just signed up for some serious adventures. The theme verse for the series is Ephesians 6:15 - and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In this second book the focus is on the Gospel. Riley Mae meets a young boy who shares his faith with all those around him. Her friend hears more about the Gospel and makes a choice to put her trust in Christ for her salvation. She gets to attend a baptism and hear the testimony of others. It also continues the theme of peace from the last book as Riley Mae faces more dangers and challenges.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Romans 1:16 – I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

Thank you to the publishers for providing me with a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
