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

By Martin Ganda , Caitlin Alifirenka, and , Liz Welch

          I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives, From Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda, and Liz Welch is a nonfiction book written in the first person, so I guess its like a autobiography. This book is a little weird though, compared to how other nonfiction books are written. Caitlin, as a twelve year old girl, gets a pen pal from a country far far away... Zimbabwea. Her classmates also get pen pals, but none wanted any from far away places they had never heard of. Most of her class chose places like Germany, or England, or other well-known places in Europe. After a few months, most of the pen pal relationships stopped, or have seriously slowed down. Caitlin, however, stays in touch. 
        Martin on the other hand, was a boy, about twelve, struggling to stay in school with his country's plumitting economy and struggling family. When he gets letters from his new friend in America, he is given hope of going to meet her and start a career in The United States. 
        This book is written by Caitlin and Martin, switching point of view every chapter. It is a really good book about how even when two people are thousand of miles apart, they can still have a good functioning healthy friendly relationship.
