Book Description :

Matt is six years old when he discovers that he is different from other children and other people. To most, Matt isn't considered a boy at all, but a beast, dirty and disgusting. But to El Patron, lord of a country called Opium, Matt is the guarantee of eternal life. El Patron loves Matt as he loves himself - for Matt is himself. They share the exact same DNA. As Matt struggles to understand his existence and what that existence truly means, he is threatened by a host of sinister and manipulating characters, from El Patron's power-hungry family to the brain-deadened eejits and mindless slaves that toil Opium's poppy fields. Surrounded by a dangerous army of bodyguards, escape is the only chance Matt has to survive. But even escape is no guarantee of freedom… because Matt is marked by his difference in ways that he doesn't even suspect.

Book Description :

This modern classic takes on an iron-fisted drug lord, clones bred for their organs, and what it means to be human. Winner of the National Book Award as well as Newbery and Printz Honors. Matteo Alacrán was not born; he was harvested. His DNA came from El Patrón, lord of a country called Opium—a strip of poppy fields lying between the United States and what was once called Mexico. Matt’s first cell split and divided inside a petri dish. Then he was placed in the womb of a cow, where he continued the miraculous journey from embryo to fetus to baby. He is a boy now, but most consider him a monster—except for El Patrón. El Patrón loves Matt as he loves himself, because Matt is himself. As Matt struggles to understand his existence, he is threatened by a sinister cast of characters, including El Patrón’s power-hungry family, and he is surrounded by a dangerous army of bodyguards. Escape is the only chance Matt has to survive. But escape from the Alacrán Estate is no guarantee of freedom, because Matt is marked by his difference in ways he doesn’t even suspect.

Book Description :

Josephe, safe in Canada, watches the television images of Haiti's descent into chaos following the collapse of the Baby Doc regime. She sees an angry mob stone to death a tonton macoute, whom she recognises as the youth who molested her as a child. In her isolation, despair and guilt she begins to recreate the stories of those who were once close to her. There is her grandmother, who dies terrified over her family's future; her cousin Alphonse who flees to the USA where he hopes to escape the dark shadow of his father and a life of domestic servitude; Alphonse's half-brother, Delphi, who joins the rebels and pays the heaviest price; Josephe's best friend, Desiree, who abandons her comfortable middle-class life to join the underground and finds there both a community and the mysteries of voudun, with the power to breathe new life into her veins. Behind them all is Delphi's mother, Mami Celeste, the mambo who has lived and died four lifetimes and whose tongue can speak the whole history of Haiti. In giving voice to these individuals and interweaving the story of her own childhood connexions with them, Josephe begins to close the distance between present and past, Canada and Haiti and the painful divisions within herself.
