Eight Days

I wanted to put a plug in for this great book , Eight Days ( a story of Haiti ) by Edwidge Danticat. My sister in law gave us this book a couple weeks ago & it is a really cool keepsake for Miss V. Do you remember the story of the little 7 yr. old boy who was pulled from the rubble 8 days after the Haiti earthquake ?The one with a really big smile ! Well, this story is based on HIS story of what was going on in his head while he waited for help. One part always shakes me up a little & reminds me of the many people who lost their lives that day & the many days to follow. It is definitely worth the read. It has become a favorite of Vania's :)
