Review 1 for Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World
Date:November 30, 2012
I recently found a book called Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World, written by Deb Allen Brammer. When I heard it was about a girl my age on the mission field I decided to read it.
It all starts with a girl named Amy, who is very exited to be going to Taiwan as a missionary. When she gets there she tries making friends with her Chinese neighbors, but it is not working out. Then she meets Jessica, the most popular girl in her school. She soon realizes Jessica is trying to get her to avoid a specific Chinese girl named Mickey. Amy struggles with the fear of what her school friends might think of her if she chooses Mickey over Jessica. When Amy tries to make friends with both Jessica and Mickey, Jessica turns her back on her. How does it end? You'll have to read the book!
In this book, Amy learns about trusting God and choosing the right friends. I loved this book because being in a missionary family myself, it helps me remember to trust God. When I first heard we would be leaving everything I knew and moving to a new country, it was kind of hard for me to trust God at that moment.
If you like reading books that teach you spiritual lessons, you would love Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World. Once you read this book, you'll want to read it again and again.

Review 2 for Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World
I love to read. So when my 9 year old granddaughter asked me to read her latest book. I did. After all, I came home from BlueRidge last spring with three of Vonda Skinner Skelton's books expecting my grandchildren to fall in love with them.
I told granddaughter I couldn't read it until I got back from my trip. She and her family left for Haiti and Husband and I left for a tour "Following Paul's Footsteps" ~~that is a story for another day.
Granddaughter's, other grandpa is a missionary to China. He goes once a year and visits and prays for the pastors of many home churches. He has many fascinating stories.
And the title of this book was "Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World" by Deb Brammer.
I am glad I read it.
Whether we travel across the sea to witness for our Lord, or just go to the corner market, we start out all pumped up. We are going to win hearts for God. But we are often not prepared to learn. And yes, we have to first learn the needs of others before we try to give them the answers.
