I read this book during my first trip to Haiti and it was a great companion to a life-changing experience. It's very interesting and I learned a lot about the Haitian culture and medicine. I'm confused as to why this is listed as a book for teens--if I remember correctly there's some language, and it's definitely not just for youth (if it is for youth at all). Inspiring and challenging, I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in Haiti or medicine in developing nations.

The original was published in 2004 is an excellent book about an amazing humanitarian. This is an ADAPTION of the original for younger readers.

I enjoyed this book mostly because it told me so many things about Haiti that I never knew. It added greatly to my knowledge of a part of the world that in all likelihood I will never get to visit.
