From the back cover: "Something to Teach Me proves that the life we are born into is not always the life we are meant to lead. Over the course of his first year in Haiti, Matt Cyr's journal entries chronicle his evolution from an American living temporarily in Haiti to a Haitian who just happened to be born into the body of a middleclass white American. Witnessing that evolution gives the reader an understanding of a culture that has much to teach us all and challenges us to find our own path in life. 250pp. Grades 812, English.
