"Land of Mountains" by Jinx Schwartz is a fantastic read for young adults and those young at heart. Told in the instantly likable and interesting voice of a ten year old girl, we see the island of Haitii in the 1950s from a fascinating and entertaining perspective.
Great adventure and plot go hand in hand with impressive knowledge of the country and its customs. I loved this book and feel I learned a lot at the same time. An all round winner.
