    Culture Shock

    American teenager Erika Slade finds herself immersed in a new culture when she convinces her mentor, 68-year old Monica Morgan, to take her to China on a missions trip. Not only is this Erika's first missions trip anywhere and her first trip over-seas, but she is just a baby Christian.

    This fictionalized version of actual events, written from the viewpoint of sixteen-year old Erika, is a bold and honest look at the trials and triumphs of over-seas missions. We follow Erika's struggles to find her place in life, to learn the foundations of her new faith, to aid in the conversion and discipleship of Chinese students and teachers, and to forgive her abusive mother and her father's killers.

    We glimpse a true mentor relationship as we witness Monica's discipleship of Erika, her obvious gift for evangelism, and her unconditional love for the Chinese people. Be careful when reading this book--it will make you want to grab your Bible and head to distant shores.

    Hebbert captures not only the "voice" of the American teenager, but she shows the struggle of new believers to live in the Spirit rather than the flesh.

    Recommended for any young adult, but especially for those new to the faith or those preparing for their first missions project.

    A must read book for Christians. This book shows people what lengths some people still have to go to be a Christian. It made me even more aware of how precious my faith is and to not be afraid to express it.

    This book moved right along with excitement and intrugue. I carried it to work, because I was so engrossed in it's characters and their trials. It is filled with exciting, believable and well rounded characters. You will have an insight to their inner turmoils and demons as well as the daily dangers they faced in China. It was a very realistic story that gives you an insight to the problems missionaries face overseas. It was an emotional, humorous, thrilling and edgy story. You'll love it.
