ABOUT THE BOOK
She is Ana, and this is her story. It begins the day she is born infected with HIV,
transmitted from her young mother. Now she barely remembers her mama, who died when Ana
was only three. From then on, Ana's childhood becomes a blur of faint memories and secret
-- secrets about her illness and about the abuse she endures.
Ana's journey is a long one. Shuffled from home to home, she rarely finds safety or love.
And then she meet a boy. Betro is one of the only people Ana trusts with all her secrets.
That trusts puts Ana on a path to breaking the silence that haas harmed her and leads her
to new beginnings, new sorrows, and new hope.
Jenna Bush has written a powerful narrative nonfiction account of a girl who struggles to
break free from a vicious cycle of abuse, poverty, and illness. Based on Jenna's work with
UNICEF and inspired by the framework of one girl's life, it is also the story of many
children around the world who are marginalized and excluded from basic care, support, and
education. Resources at the back of the book share how ytou can make a difference to
children in need and how you can protect yourself and others.
This book really makes you think about other people and their problems they are dealing
with as we speak. Some of us have it made in the shade, while others have to work to live.
Others suffer from terrible diseases and deal with it in their own way. I highly recommend
this book to all you viewers out there. It really makes you think twice about your
hardships and what you are doing to help poeple.
AUTHOR OF ANA'S STORY IS JENNA BUSH WHO WAS TOLD BY ANA HERSELF ABOUT HER STORY.
