A few years ago my family joined my son's education group to Costa Rica. Much of this book brought back wonderful memories including that of going to the beach at night to see if we could witness a turtle laying eggs. We were not lucky enough to see one but did get to see where eggs had been laid. Disappointing but the most important thing was that we did not disturb the turtles and did not see any poachers. The people of Costa Rica are so wonderful and this book reminded me of how I felt when I saw how they lived so happily without all of the stuff" we in the United States just have to have. So, back to the book, action that pulled me in from the start and kept me reading! I enjoyed every second of this story and I loved the characters and hope for more from this author. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
