"The remarkable tenacity of these two souls pulled like magnets across the world by their opposite polarities - one committed to helping, the other to surviving - is deeply affecting...It's quite a little miracle of unexpected genuineness."―New York Times Book Review
"A well-written, accessible story that will open Western adolescents' eyes to life in developing countries. Told in the first person, with chapters alternating between Caitlin's and Martin's points of view, this title effectively conveys both of these young people's perspectives...a strong and inspiring story...and an eye-opening look at life in another culture."―SLJ
"An inspirational story...eye-opening."―The Bulletin
"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."―School Library Connection
"Caitlin and Martin seemed to have nothing in common--except a curiosity about the world outside their own and a willingness to reach out to each other. With a lot of postage and a lot more hope, these two pen pals changed each other's lives and the lives of everyone who knew them. An inspiring story that will change your life, too."―Patricia McCormick, author of the National Book Award finalist Sold

The virtue of this book is not its literary qualities, it is not highbrow or sophisticated reading at all. Its value is in its being a true and edifying story: It sets an example to everyone of us, and it is told in a direct and uncomplicated way which in my opinion ought to make it good school reading for any teenager, and maybe especially so in the western world of affluence.
