RM Book Lounge – Rubble: The Search for a Haitian Boy

Most of us can only imagine the nightmare of searching for a loved one after a natural disaster, such as hurricane, tsunami, or earthquake.  Sandra Marquez Stathis takes us through her real-life nightmare when she went to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake in search of Junior, a homeless boy who she loved like a son but was unable to adopt when she met him in the 90s.  Travel with Stathis on her journey through the aftermath of the earthquake, and learn of the devastation and also the love that she found in Haiti.
