Little Princes By Conor Grennan
Civil war. Maoists. Trafficked children. Remote villages in the Himalayan Mountains. A young American man whose two months of donated time turns into a heart wrenching / heartwarming adventure. . . How would you respond when shocked little children accuse you of eating god (beef)? Or when the answer t “Where is the bathroom?” is “No.” Or when the ‘treat’ set before you is sticky on the outside and tastes like what you’d imagine sugar-free soy chocolate might taste like if it had fallen in tar, fossilized, and been dug up millions of years later by hungry scientists. A must read if you enjoy adventure, kids, and courageous people.

Ever thought there should be a ‘how to do life’ book that doesn’t read like a ‘how to’ book? Would you be fascinated by a ‘devotional’ book that is not a ‘devotional’ book? Does reading about a person who ‘triumphs over tragedy’ turn your crank? Well then – you must read the book entitled Life Without Limits written by Australian born American Nick Vujicic who is living life without limbs! Inspirational. Uplifting. Captivating!
