"I couldn't put Dear Haiti, Love Alaine down!" --New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory "An enchanting and engrossing novel full of wit and laughter." --Edwidge Danticat, author of Breath, Eyes, Memory "Remarkable, funny, and whip-smart." --Ibi Zoboi, author of American Street, National Book Award finalist "Maika and Maritza Moulite have created quite the masterpiece." "Alaine's sarcastic quips...are worth the price of admission alone." --HYPEBAE "A beautiful story from start to finish." --Buzzfeed Alaine Beauparlant has heard about Haiti all her life... But the stories were always passed down from her dad--and her mom, when she wasn't too busy with her high-profile newscaster gig. But when Alaine's life goes a bit sideways, it's time to finally visit Haiti herself. What she learns about Haiti's proud history as the world's first black republic (with its even prouder people) is one thing, but what she learns about her own family is another. Suddenly, the secrets Alaine's mom has been keeping, including a family curse that has spanned generations, can no longer be avoided. It's a lot to handle, without even mentioning that Alaine is also working for her aunt's nonprofit, which sends underprivileged kids to school and boasts one annoyingly charming intern. But if anyone can do it's Alaine. "Delightful." --Essence magazine "Alaine Beauparlant is YA's new favorite heroine." --Author Nina Moreno for Bustle "Seamlessly blending story lines and allusions to Haiti's history and culture, the authors create an indelible, believable character in Alaine--naive, dynamic, and brutally honest--who stretches and grows as her remarkable, affectingly rendered family relationships do." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Sisters Maika and Maritza Moulite deliver a phenomenal coming-of-age story with this stunning novel." --Booklist (starred review) "Enchanting." --Kirkus Reviews

display_descriptionAfter an incident at school, seventeen year-old Alaine is spending spring break in a "volunteer immersion project", toiling away under the ever-watchful eyes of Tati Estelle and her eagle-eyed mother at a new nonprofit in Haiti. Although it is meant as punishment, Alaine is still able to flirt with Tati's distractingly cute intern, get some actual face time with her mom and experience her family's history in Haiti for the first time.
