Dear Haiti, Love Alaine (Paperback)
Co-written by sisters Maika and Maritza Moulite, and told in epistolary style through letters, articles, emails, and diary entries, this exceptional debut novel captures a sparkling new voice and irrepressible heroine.
When a school presentation goes very wrong, Alaine Beauparlant finds herself suspended and shipped off to Haiti.
Thanks to the incident (dont ask), she's spending the next two months doing what her school is calling a "spring volunteer immersion project. Its definitely no vacation. She'll toil away under the ever-watchful eyes of tati Estelle at her new nonprofit. And her usually absent lean-in queen of a mother is even there, too, lying low away from the media sharks after a much more public incident of her own.
All things considered, there are some pretty nice perks…like flirting with Tatis distractingly cute intern, getting actual face time with her mom, and experiencing Haiti for the first time. But learning the truth about her mother's meltdown, and how she might be able to help, sets Alaine on a path that she never could have imagined.
