But Serafina will do whatever it takes to go to school so she can help the people of Haiti one day just like Antoinette Solaine. Her dream will have to overcome more than crippling poverty. Serafina's family will face illness, hunger, floods, and eventually the earthquake that destroys most of the island. Life only gets harder for Serafina and the people of Haiti, and she will see the truth of Manman's words, "The only unbreakable home is one made with love."
I LOVE Ann E. Burg's newest verse novel. It is beautiful story about dreams and love in the face of extreme poverty and devastation.
