One dark night Kiisa discovers why she had to come to the boarding school, "For such a time as this," And Kiisa and the bird embark on rescue mission that includes rebels, stolen girls, illegal logging of the forest, a dangerous cobra, and of course, more messengers---birds and a talking monkey---who help in unexpected ways. Kiisa sets out to rescue others, but along the way she is rescued herself from fear and bitterness, as she learns that bravery is nothing more (or less) than being in the right place at the right time, and going forward despite her fears.

Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Children's BookOctober 6, 2016Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Heres a childrens book that will be loved in any Christian home. The plot is set in Africa and has the unique thrills of that continent. The author, J. A. Myhre, is a doctor in Africa. Her 20 years in Africa makes her able to visualize accurately situations there. The stories here began as stories for her own children and its a blessing that they are available for children everywhere.
The story transports us to the life of an amazing girl named Kiisa. She is dropped by her father at a school where she feels out of place and has to take a stand to do right and suffers for it. A little bird befriends her and encourages her. Later, the story becomes riveting when the school is attacked. What Kiisa does makes the story ( I dont want to give away the plot!).
Beyond the gripping nature of the story itself is the description of the unsugarcoated nature of evil in our world and the right kind of courage in its presence. This story challenges our children to be righteously courageous in our world. I recommend it.
