I WILL ALWAYS WRITE BACK, by Alifirenka, Ganda, and Welch

22875069

The story: Caitlin lives in the US and life is good. Martin lives in Zimbabwe, and life stinks (although he doesn’t exactly know it–it’s just the way things are). A pen-pal letter from Caitlin changes both of their lives in ways they could never have foreseen, proving that one small action really can have far-reaching consequences, and that one small person really can make a huge difference.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: This book has a truly powerful message–that one person, trying to do the right thing, really can make a difference–as well as shedding light on how people live in other places. True, there aren’t any explosions or romances–but if you’ve ever wondered whether a single person can actually have a positive impact on the life of someone on the other side of the planet–take a look at this one.
