"Listening for Lions" by Gloria Whelan is a hit!!!!!

I absolutely loved this book. This was yet another one that I just picked up randomly in the young adult reading section of the library. Sometimes that's where I find the books that I love the most!
'Listening for Lions' is about a girl named Rachel who has grown up in Africa with her parents who run a small hospital in a very small African village. Her parents end up dying due to disease and she becomes caught up in a local wealthy families plot to use her as their victim to get more money from the grandfather of their recently passed daughter who is her own same age.
Will she escape their greedy hands and fall into more capable ones? And will she ever be able to get back the life in Africa that she grows sadder every day to have lost? This is a very charming book, especially for young girls. It is one that I would add to my collection. Hope you enjoy it! Happy reading!
