The true story of an all-American girl and a boy from an impoverished city in Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives foreverIt started as an assignment. Everyone in Caitlin's class wrote to an unknown student somewhere in a distant place. All the other kids picked countries like France or Germany, but when Caitlin saw Zimbabwe written on the board, it sounded like the most exotic place she had ever heard of—so she chose it.Martin was lucky to even receive a pen pal letter. There were only ten letters, and forty 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 letters. Their story will inspire readers to look beyond their own lives and wonder about the world at large and their place in it.

2 1/2 stars for the audiobook, but 4 stars for the book. I loved the performer who reads Martin's chapters, but the performer who reads Caitlin's chapters has a high, nasally voice that drives me crazy. I finally stopped mid-way and finished reading the book, which is an excellent story of two pen pals from completely different worlds.
