Our Accidental Adventure by by Ness Knisley
This is the second book I've read by Ness. She writes shorter books, but they are some of my favourite.
Summary: Three siblings go on a rafting trip, and somehow get mixed up with pirates, storms, and a lost treasure. Oh yes, and one mustn't forget their dwindling food supply since dying of starvation would be a sad way to go.
Mostly this book was just a lot of fun. The siblings get into all kinds of mishaps and then have to try and get out of them. I was a little sad it was so short, but it seemed to be the kind of story meant to be shorter so I didn't mind too much. (I just really love Ness's story telling style)
In spite of it being a short, fun story there was also a nice little message on prayer to go with it. Somehow Ness fit it into the story without making it sound preachy, if that makes sense.
Not only do I recommend this book, but I recommend Ness's other book. And very likely her third even though I haven't been able to read it yet.
