Be strong, my Abela. These are the last words of Abela's mother in their HIV/Aids stricken African village, where it seems that to live or to die, to be sick or to be healthy, is just a matter of chance. It takes all Abela's strength to survive her Uncle Thomas's scheming to get to Europe, but what will be her fate as an illegal immigrant?

I don't want a sister or brother, thinks Rosa in England, when her mother tells her that she wants to adopt a child. Could these two girls ever become sisters? Is there room in Rosa's family for an African orphan haunted by lions? Is there room in their hearts? Download and start listening now!

    " The second children's book that I read and it wasn't as good as the first one, so I find it quite difficult to say whether it was good or not. I was bored by the story but maybe I child won't be. At least it was an easy read once I put my mind to finishing it. "

    " Solid kid book -- at least 6th grade or up. 2 girls' stories: one in England, one in Tanzania. How their worlds come together. Touches on female genital mutilation, foster care, multi-racial families. Overall just a really good read. "

    " This book dealt with a lot of issues that are usually not in children's books. It had adoption, HIV/AIDS, abuse, child trafficking, and death in it. It would be a good read aloud book, but only for the older grades. "

    " A must-read for older children. "
