Kate Bariletti

"Well written adventure thriller about the daughter of an American diplomat getting accustomed to living in Kenya. Kate Bariletti deftly introduces facts about Kenya, while sprinkling lovely descriptions about the people and the culture. Add in intrigue and political issues for realism and you get a powerful picture of African life. The story is insightful as it is exciting. A wonderful read for YA that will keep them engaged and able to discuss the well defined and realistic picture of African life".

"It should be on every secondary teacher's book shelf! I really enjoy reading a story that takes place in Kenya! All new information for me."

"The book's resident teen, Megan is a typical teenage girl with a typical teenage character, living a not so typical life. Her persona is not sugar coated in any way, shape, or form making her character very believable".
