              01 02 There is a lion in our village, and it is carrying away our children. At her father's funeral, Binti's grandmother utters the words that no one in Malawi wants to hear. Binti's father and her mother before him, dies of AIDS. Binti, her sister, and brother are separated and ...sent to the home of relatives who can barely tolerate their presence. Ostracized by their extended family, the orphans are treated like the lowest servants. With her brother far away and her sister wallowing in her own sorrow, Binti can hardly contain her rage. She, Binti Phirim, was once a child star of a popular radio program. Now she is scraping to survive. Binti always believed she was special, now she is nothing but a common AIDS orphan. Binti Phiri is not about to give up. Even as she clings to hope that her former life will be restored, she must face a greater challenge. If she and her brother and sister are to reunited, Binti Phiri will have to look outside herself and find a new way to be special. Compelling and uplifting, The Heaven Shop, is a contemporary novel that puts a very real face on the African AIDS pandemic, which to-date has orphaned more than 11 million African children. Inspired by a young radio performer the author met during her research visit to Malawi, Binti Phiri is a compelling character that readers will never forget.

              Jake and his older sister, Shoshona, have been under foster care since their single mother was jailed three years before. Jake has created an alter ego named Jakeman to help him cope, and he has secretly written a series of letters to the Governor, pleading for their mom's releas...e. Along with an assortment of nervous, angry, and damaged kids, Jake and Shoshona regularly take the long bus trip through New York state to visit their mother in jail. But this time, the journey will be like no other. The social workers contract food poisoning on the way back to the city and are taken to a hospital, leaving the exasperated driver and his hidden bottle of booze in charge. In no time the driver is drunk and lost, and he staggers off the bus, leaving the children in the middle of nowhere. Sick to death of a system that has deserted them at every turn, Shoshana takes the wheel. And Jake and the others hatch a plan to find the Governor and force him to listen to them once and for all.
