Accepting an invitation to yet another one of Aunt Sid’s adventures, Maddie Chase is going to Papua New Guinea. When helping her Aunt write an article about the AIDS epidemic in Papua New Guinea, Maddie faces her own difficult challenges.
When Maddie and Aunt Sid meet some of the New Guinea citizens, they find that life there isn’t very easy and that they have to be very careful. Life is different in this new country and everything is new and exciting for Maddie and Aunt Sid.
Notes from a Spinning Planet ~ Papua New Guinea is an informative book that tells us true facts about the aids epidemic and the effects it has had on this country. This book tells us sad things but within a superb story. The issues in this book are based on the poverty and health crisis in Papua New Guinea, I think this is good because it is different to other books Melody Carlson has written. This book is a good way to open people’s eyes and to realise that there are lots of bad things in this world.
I loved reading this book and seeing the challenges and struggles that they go through and how they work it out and deal with them.
