12 Days in Africa by Lisa Sanders

12 Days in Africa is a memoir of a mother's journey with her teenage son to Uganda.  While there, she experienced grief, suffering, and a simplicity that would change her life forever.  From the joy she felt holding a little girl's hand to the anguish of holding a dying boy, Lisa shares it all.

While I enjoyed some of the stories shared in this book, I really had a hard time getting past the lack of structure and the many grammatical errors throughout.  I felt like I was reading her personal journal rather than a published book.  Considering this is not a pre-publication copy like others I have received, I was really surprised at the way the book jumped around.  The numerous grammar mistakes were distracting and took away from the overall beauty of the book.
