This is a really thought provoking story about pen pals Caitlin Alifrenka, and Martin Ganda. It's a non-fiction book, but it reads like a really good fiction book. How it started, is that Caitlin got a school pen pal from Zimbabwe. This is Martin. They write back and forth for some time, and Caitlin realizes her positive friend is living a hard life. His family can barely afford many things she takes for granted, like bread, milk, chicken, and even school. How can she help her friend when his country is going through hard times?
