Synopsis

I Will Always Write Back How One Letter Changed Two Lives by Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda

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, 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 their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire readers to look beyond their own lives and wonder about the world at large and their place in it.

Reviews

This heart-warming memoir will inspire readers to open their eyes to other cultures and realize that even the smallest of gestures can be important.
