Got a pen pal?

I love writing letters and this story is a continuation of the wonderful feelings that happen when pen meets paper.

Caitlin and Martin are joined through the post and share their lives with each other. Caitlin slowly learns that what she has taken for granted is a tremendous excess in Martin's life. Her dollar sent as an example of US currency will buy a soda at the mall, for Martin it fed his family for 2 weeks.

Their bond grows and grows as they teach each other about hard work, compassion and empathy. Each one of us knows we have a great friend when we are inspired to be better in our own lives.

Inspiring

Amazing story! Inspiring, sweet, makes you see the beauty in people.
Caitlin's voice is a bit annoying. She talks like a 12-year-old throughout the book even though she is 17 at the end. In spite of this one flaw, the overall book still deserves at least five stars.

Fascinating

As a South African who is very familiar with the USA I found the story fascinating, heartbreaking and insightful. I wish many more millions of Africans could have their fortunes improved by the generosity of Americans!

A roller coaster of anticipation

This story is about the best of all of us. Its about the generous, trusting, loving side of ourselves that perceivers, hope upon hope. Its also about learning personal boundaries.

I listen to audible books while driving to and from work each day. When I park my car and have to turn off the book at some of the most suspenseful moments it makes me that much more anxious to get back in my car for the next journey between the America I know, and the unfamiliar Zimbabwe that is revealed in this book.

The focus on positive thinking being the driving force that leads these people towards the conclusion, is compelling and inspiring.

I don't want to give away the ending, but I very rarely cry from books or movies. I cried at the end of this book. It's a treasure.

Absolutely fantastic story. A must read.

I loved this book. I got through the first 3 chapters and restarted listening to it with my son. Not only did I love it but my son loved it. Really opened his eyes to all the advantages he has living in America. Great story!!!!

Wonderful!!

The power of love in action. What a wonderful story of human interaction and kindness. Family is not always who you are born to - sometimes others are set in your path to embrace into the fold.
