really liked it

Despite anything negative I may have to say about this book, let me assure you that Katie herself gets an A++ 100++ in my book. She is a remarkable young woman who has answered God's call in her life and realized the true joy that comes from self-sacrifice and obedience to the will of God.

That being said, the book, while enjoyable, got a bit preachy and repetitive at times. However, she said a lot of things that bear repeating, so I'm going to quote one, realizing that what I read was a NetGalley, and that the final copy may not be the same.

From the forward:

People who really want to make a difference in the world usually do it in one way or another, and I've noticed a something about people who make a difference in the world: They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, and that every life matters....They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren't determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they're satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up.
They don't do anything to call attention to themselves, they simply pay attention to the everyday needs of others, even if it's only one person.
The book takes us with Katie as she heads to Uganda for the first time, to when she returns there instead of going to college. We follow her back the US for a year of college and then home to her adopted children in Uganda. You can get a feeling for her writing style at Katie's blog.

Ok, maybe the writing shouldn't earn this book an A, but I'll give it one anyway.
