In the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, 15-year-old Shorty, a poor gang member from the slums of Site Soleil, is trapped in the rubble of a ruined hospital, and as he grows weaker he has visions and memories of his life of violence, his lost twin sister, and of Toussaint L''Ouverture, who liberated Haiti from French rule in the 1804.
Annotation:
Alternating between modern and 19th-century Haiti, this thought-provoking young adult novel shares the experience of a teen boy trapped in the rubble of the massive 2010 Haitian earthquake. A product of the slums, Shorty's life has been filled with violence and pain. As he recalls his personal history, Shorty also begins having visions of historic Toussaint L'Ouverture, who started the slave revolt against the French centuries ago.

Praise

"The relentless oppression, poverty, violence, and instability of the country is vividly conveyed through Shorty's stark, graphic narrative." December 2012
