This book should be required reading in every school in America, starting in middle school. If you are a teacher with a unit on Africa, please add this to your curriculum. William's story starts when he is a teenager and is simply told but it speaks volumes. (He's my new hero.)
The book deals with so many subjects - family, poverty, governmental corruption, creativity, hope, AIDS, overcoming incredible hardship, ingenuity, perseverance, but it is not preachy. I highly recommend it for everyone 12 and older.
