From the Publisher
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.
