HARPERCOLL

Ana’s story begins the day she is born with HIV, transmitted from her mother, who dies just a few years later. From then on, Ana's childhood becomes a blur of secrets—about her illness, her family, and the abuse she endures. Shuffled from home to home, Ana rarely finds safety or acceptance. But after she falls in love and becomes pregnant at seventeen, she embarks on a journey that leads her to new beginnings, new sorrows, and new hope.

Based on her work with UNICEF and inspired by the framework of one girl's life, Jenna Bush tells the story of many children around the world who are excluded from basic care, support, and education. Resources at the back of this book share how you can help children like Ana and protect yourself and others.

This is a sad, but not unfamiliar story of youth poverty and abuse. It does provide some insight into the reason's for a rebellious teen's behaviour. It is not clear whether this book is targeted at teens or adults. I was disappointed that the role of Unicef in the aid's crisis was not indicated. I am not sure how Unicef 1played a role in Ana's life. Ana has good medical and educational support and it is not clear who provided it. The story would have been more compelling if we were aware of how Unicef was involved. Good references.
