The New York Times bestselling true story of an all-American girl and a boy from Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives forever. It started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. Martin was lucky to even receive a pen-pal letter. There were only ten letters, and fifty kids in his class. But he was the top student, so he got the first one. That letter was the beginning of a correspondence that spanned six years and changed two lives. In this compelling dual memoir, Caitlin and Martin recount how they became best friends --and better people--through their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.… (mer)

This book chronicles the correspondence of two young pen pals, a young girl from the United States, and a young boy from Zimbabwe. Their connection teaches them about each other’s daily life and culture and ultimately transforms their lives.

The true story of an upper middle class white girl from suburban Pennsylvania becoming a pen pal with an impoverished black boy from a secondary city in Zimbabwe and their unlikely friendship. Martin does not want to tell Caitlin how poor he and his family are nor the deplorable living conditions, but with the support of Caitlin and her family, he is able to overcome long odds and emigrate to attend Villinova on a full scholarship. The story is heartwarming, but the writing while authentic was very much "middle school." ( )

Delightful. Uplifting. ( )

I listened to the audio version of this book and it was really engaging. The voices were just what I could imagine Martin and Caitlin's voices might have been like. I learned a lot about Zimbabwe and the hardships of the people there. I admired Caitlin's commitment to supporting Martin even though she was a young girl. The book didn't shy away from showing the huge difference between their two lives and how superficial American teens can be due to growing up in such a privileged society. I would love to know how both are doing since the end of this book. ( )

In a society where we enjoy instant communication, through emails, Twitter, instagram, and more, it takes a bit of imagination to put yourself in a place where correspondence happens through unreliable snail-mail, with letters arriving only monthly, if that. That’s how Caitlin, from Pennsylvania, and Martin, from Zimbabwe, became friends. This unlikely friendship developed between a school girl with a big heart, and a school boy who wanted a better life for his family and himself. As Caitlin began to realize the poverty and need that existed where Martin lived, she was determined to do something about it, and her desire empowered not only her and her family, but also Martin, and especially, those people who had the power and wherewithal to help. The result is documented in this well written book, by Caitlin and Martin with the help of Liz Welch. As Caitlin says at the close of the book, “Kindness is contagious. It changes lives. It changes mine. What will it do for you?” We can’t all do what Caitlin did for Martin and his family, but even if we can’t do everything she did, it shouldn’t stop us from doing what we can do, no matter how little that may be.
