Personally, I really enjoyed this book. It is fast paced and and always leaves you wanting more. In addition, this book has a lot of suspense and mystery surrounding what will happen next. Even when you think you know what will happen, there is always a plot twist which just makes the book more exciting. However, if you are very religious fair warning because this book talks about God and praying a decent amount. Apart from that, this book was excellent.

Now for diving into the plot. A group of teenagers go out to a poor country to help build a school wall. However, things start heating up when they are about to leave the country, the revolutuion starts and everything goes wrong. The rebels have finally beat the government and all hope is lost. All in all, this plot was good and I highly advise reading this book.
