Allie’s Bayou Rescue

Allie’s Bayou Rescue
By Missy and Mia Robertson
Publisher: Zonderkidz
Genre: Juvenile Fiction
Release Date: 02/27/18

Mother and daughter team up for the newest book in the “Faithgirlz” books. Allie Carroway does not have a conventional life—her family’s reality TV show, severe allergies, cousins galore, and a possible move far, far away. She has a lot to handle, but with the help of her eclectic family and her faith, she learns to weather the storms of life.

The personal story behind the authors fuels the story. Mia—the youngest daughter of Jase and Missy Robertson—is a teenager now. Born with a cleft lip and palate, she has a driven dedication to advocacy and the Mia Moo Fund. She has already faced her own challenges, which helps to inspire Allie in how she faces the things that come her way.

The chapter length isn’t overwhelming, and Duck Dynasty fans will appreciate the fictional glimpse behind the scenes of the show. It’s a refreshingly positive spin on teenage drama, and offers a faith-centered outlook on how to handle life-altering situations.
