Chanda's Secrets is sad yet inspirational. Chanda's life seems to just be hardship after hardship, trial after trial, but she refuses to give up. She has dreams, and instead of being dragged down by her destitute situation, or giving up because life is too hard and the odds aren't in her favor, she fights for her family, her future, and her friend. She is strong beyond her years. While I am aware of the AIDS epidemic in Africa, Chanda gives it a face, and she makes me want her to overcome all the obstacles trying to hold her back. This is my second time reading this book, and I'll probably read it again. I'm also looking forward to reading Chanda's Wars, and I hope Allan Stratton continues to chronicle Chanda's story in more books in the future.
