Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids by Jill Osborne

Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids is a Faithgirlz! book and the second in The Good News Shoes series by Jill Osborne.Riley Mae and the Ready Eddy Rapids book cover

This book continues with Riley Mae adjusting as the spokesperson for Swiftrivers’ athletic shoes for girls. The excitement also continues as Riley, her family, and the siblings that own Swiftriver fly to a secret location to hideout while they are hoping things get figured out. (I’m not going to ruin anything from book 1, Riley Mae and the Rock Shocker Trek. You really should read it because these books definitely build on each other.) Swiftriver is going to use this time to for a photo shoot of Riley Mae on a river rafting trip. She isn’t too thrill about that, especially after the danger during the last photo shoot at Half Dome!!

However, there Riley Mae meets 10-year old Sunday who has leukemia and yet goes through each day with amazing joy and hunger for life. He shares that “I want my soul to be on fire for God — no matter what”. With all this shoes business, Riley has been thinking about “For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared” from Ephesians 6. But what does “soul on fire” mean?

Rusty, Riley Mae’s friend, gets to come along later, even though she doesn’t know the full story of why they are there. Rusty decides to give her life to Christ and then opens up to Riley about finding her mom. What will happen with that?

I still totally recommend this series – great stories with fun characters, age appropriate but also interesting enough for moms 🙂 , and Christ-centered!!


Disclosure: I received a copy of this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
