I am reviewing a copy of A Calf Named Brian Higgins through One Elm Books and Netgalley:
Hannah Higgins is a young teen who believes her Summer is ruined when she and her Mother go to Africa to work in a remote village outside of Kenya with her Mon and Uncle. Hannah has never been to a developing country she thinks the food is gross and the community is dirty. She has to learn to live without electricity or running water, and to top it off she learns she will have to attend school here.
Before long Hannah learns that people here are dying of starvation and preventable diseases. Hannah becomes frustrated and wanted to help but when poverty threatens the lives of people she loves, all she wants to do is go home.
A Calf Named Brian Higgins is a story of adventure and discovery.
I give A Calf Named Brian Higgins five out of five stars!
