About the Author
CHRIS HEIMERDINER is the writer/director of the movie “Passage to Zarahemla” and the songwriter/producer of the album “Whispered Visions”. However, he is the best known as the author of the popular Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites Adventure series as well as “Passage to Zarahemla.” Chris has imagined a tale that bridges modern times with the world of The Book of Mormon. He has published a novel sequel to “Passage” entitled “Escape From Zarahemla” which ties together the “Zarahemla” world with the “Tennis Shoes” world in a unique and fascinating way. He has also recently published Muckwhip’s Guide to Capturing the Latter-day Soul—a modern satire featuring a fictional devil named Muckwhip striving to “bring down” one specific member of the LDS faith. Next Chris will publish another (the 12th) book in the Tennis Shoes series entitled “Thorns of Glory.” Chris is the father of five children and five step children. His second oldest son, Ammon, is currently serving a mission in Columbia, South America. The joys of Chris’s life are his children and his eternal companion, Emily.
Once again, hang on to the Cliff for he has done it again!

This was no less spectacular than the other Tennis Shoes Books. The only part that puzzled me was the twist that left Megan and her companions hanging until the next book. We hear nothing of them. I can live with that because we are lead to them at the end of this book. Never forget the famous Cliff hangers that are in each Tennis Shoe book!
This book was great

This book was really good. It took me 11 hours to read, cuz it was so interesting. I have been a fan of the Tennis Shoe books since I was 17. It was really interesting to me because this book is based around the Tower of Babel. I can't wait for the new book to come out in the next year or two.
Yep, they keep getting better.

As another poster said, they do get better. You wonder how many different adventures they can have, and how can they continue with the characters getting older, but it works out. He adds characters when needed, and they only improve the story.

These books just get better and better! Each one is full of surprises and thought-provoking twists... especially this one! Chris Heimerdinger is fearless in the license he takes in his writing, which is what makes his stories so incredibly addicting!
