Eight Days is inspired by the happenings during the Haitian earthquake. The story itself is inspiring. Junior, an eight year old boy, is buried alive underneath his house during the earthquake. Alone and without food and water the little boy was trapped for eight days. How absolutely terrifying!
How did the little boy survive? He imagined playing, singing, and doing all the things he loved to do. Then, on the eighth day, he was rescued.
Eight Days is definitely not a book for small children. Nonetheless, many children experienced the worry of family and friends who did experience the earthquake first hand. For these children, Junior shows them that courage, faith, and imagination can make all the difference.
