An incredible story of a 14-year-old boy whose African village is devastated by drought.
Reading in the little village library and scavenging for parts he accomplishes the impossible. I loved this book when it first came out in 2009, and now a young readers edition has just been released in paperback.
Truly inspirational, the author demonstrates that anything is possible with education and determination.
