1. I’m not familiar with Gloria Whelan, but this sounded excellent. I’ve a twelve year old who I think would eat this up. And how timely! with the world closing schools in fear against the swine flu, we have this story set into a similar background. Also, it’s not often we see missionaries painted in the light that they should be. Thanks for the review.

    Oh, hey. About a week ago, over at All About Children’s Books there is a post asking “were are all the contemporary YA novels for the pollyanna crowd?”. Listening for Lions seems like it one a lot of folks are looking for.
