Jeff, his sister, and their friends head to Nepal to get some footage from the cold mountainous Asian country. After a break-in at their host's apartment, the kids become involved in a dangerous journey along the cold Himalayan trails to rescue a child from being sold into slavery. Yes, that does happen in other nations.
Along the way, the teens share their faith while enduring exhaustion, sickness, injury, bitter cold, and being chased by some scary guys. You will love this adventure!
And if you are studying geography, your children will learn something about Asia in general and Nepal in particular, as well Christianity in Nepal. We loved this book!
Trying to keep up with my children's appetite for books and looking for some historical fiction set in Asia while we were studying geography led me to the Reel Kids Adventure series by Dave Gustaveson, published by YMAM Publishing.
A former missionary, the author has a passion for every nation to hear the Good News and that desire comes across through his writings without being preachy. Though the writing is at a fifth to seventh grade level, children and teens will all enjoy this adventure. It would make a great read aloud.
Though the children are in a country hostile to Christianity, they stand firm to honor Christ. This story is a delightful adventure that all ages will enjoy.
I heartily recommend this book!
