After Black Saturday, they hesitated continuing, but realised the sharing of stories between these kids who had lost so much, would be a true education. They even extended the invitation t [...]

    2. This is a beautiful book. Two talented writers have inspired two groups of teenagers to write to each other. One class of kids was in Afghanistan, that place of ongoing trauma.
