Caitlin is a popular teenage girl living in the United States, living a very comfortable lifestyle. Martin is a poor teenage boy living in the bush of Zimbabwe in South Africa. Caitlin gets an assignment at school to write to a pen pal. She ends up with Martin. Martin is the top of his class and is the only one at his school who gets a pen pal from America. They learn more and more about each other and their very different lifestyles. They create an unbreakable bond and have the adventure of a lifetime together.
This book is unforgettable. It opened my mind to see how the world is such a big place. This book is written in a magnificent way. The way the author used both characters' point of view back and forth at the same time really helps the reader understand how different Caitlin and Martin’s lives really are. I have no complaints about this book. It was amazing.
