Abby goes to a school in Illinois and she doesn’t have the best grades. She might even have to be held back in 6th grade, so Abby decides to do an extra credit project writing letters to a pen pal.

By writing to a boy who lives in Afghanistan, Abby learns about different cultures and gets a new perspective on life.

This is a wonderful story which will inspire you and make you smile.
