5.0 out of 5 stars INSPIRING!!! August 5, 2011
By JANET
Format:Paperback
I read this book from cover to cover. It is the story of a quiet but very
intelligent Ayore girl in Paraguay. The tiny village is comprised of Ayore tribe members and missionaries from the United States. A group of minor league baseball players come to the village. Their leader Sean Henry creates a baseball camp. Both boys nd girls participate. There is much warmth and closeness to God shown throughout the camp. The leaders pray with the children. Baseball games played brings thrills to the passages. Sermons in the church encourages you to live for God.

As Colandra continues her schooling the young girl excels. She truly is a gifted child. Her teachers are challenged. Decisions must be made. Conferences are held with her parents. Colandra takes the college entrance exams. At the age of 15 she passes. Choices must be made. It is decided for her to attend college in Florida.

In parallel with this two teenage boys have been told by the professional baseball players that they have all the tools to make it to the big league. But they must go to a High School in the United States.

This book is about making the right choices in life. Great and exciting book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Her world July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Colandra has her story continue in this book. Her people have had their lives improve thanks to others and they are continuing to grow in their faith. Colandra is given the opportunity to go to America to college due to her ruggedness, but will she do it? Will she be able to leave her family, taking her faith with her and pursue the education her abilities are giving her?
As with the first book it is a little choppy with sentences not quite flowing, but an otherwise good book.
