This book about Sam an only child in Malawi whose parents die from AIDS. Not only does he have to come to terms with the loss of his parents, he has to adjust to living with his aunt and four other children, sleeping on a mat in a village without electricity. It's a compelling read with a hint of adventure as well as the emotional issues and I think it will resonate with all children regardless of where they live.
