Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Under the Mango Tree by Chris Field

Title: Under the Mango Tree – A Story of Friendship and Freedom Under the mango tree

Author: Chris Field

Illustrator: Gretchen Nickson

Publisher: Smith Publicity

Published: December 1st, 2014

Rating:   5/5

This book meets its goal of sharing the story of trafficked children in Africa in a way that other children could relate to without being frightened. It is beautifully illustrated and relates what is happening in fishing villages in Ghana, Africa, as a result of the Mercy Project. It is a heart breaking scenario with a more positive outcome and the story is shared in a manner that makes the reader want to continue to make a difference to the lives of trafficked children. I hope this book helps raise both awareness and funds to help everyone involved in this project – go to http://www.mercyproject.net to learn more about this.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley too
for letting me read this book in exchange for this, an honest review.
