I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives

Martin Ganda, Caitlin Alifirenka
The true story of an all-American girl and a boy from Zimbabwe and the letter that changed both of their lives forever.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 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 their long-distance exchange. Their story will inspire you to look beyond your own life and wonder about the world at large and your place in it.

An entertaining memoir that really does change the way you think. Taking place during a difficult time in the US, two kids from two different countries develop a bond through letters. A great reminder that there are other people with other lives out there in the world. Part epistolary, part narrative, this memoir could be used to study both. Could be very useful for a writer's workshop piece
