Goodreads: 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 suddenly 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?
Ope’s Opinion: If you are looking for an awesome book to share with a young reader or to read to a young person in your life – this book is an awesome choice. The story is appropriate for a young person, but interesting enough for the adult sharing it.
There is a really good mystery, twist to the story. The plot will keep your attention from the beginning until the end.
I liked that Riley Mae was into sports, her friends and God. She was very relatable to any young girl. She was very aware of other peoples feelings and needs. An attribute I would love to see passed on to others.
