From National Book Award nominee Edwidge Danticat comes a
timely, brilliantly crafted story of hope and imagination--a
powerful tribute to Haiti and children around the world!
Hope comes alive in this heartfelt and deeply resonating story.
While Junior is trapped for 8 days beneath his collapsed
house after an earthquake, he uses his imagination for
comfort. Drawing on beautiful, everyday-life memories,
Junior paints a sparkling picture of Haiti for each of those
days--flying kites with his best friend or racing his sister
around St. Marc's Square--helping him through the tragedy
until he is finally rescued.
Love and hope dance across each page--granting us a way to
talk about resilience as a family, a classroom, or a friend.
