Description

Rebeka Uwitonze was born in Rwanda with curled and twisted feet, which meant she had to crawl or be carried to get around. At nine years old, she received an offer that could change her life: A doctor in the US might be able to turn her feet. But it would mean leaving her own family behind and going to America on her own.

Her Own Two Feet tells Rebeka's inspiring story through her eyes, with the help of one of her hosts. She travels from Rwanda to Austin, Texas, to join the Davis family. Despite knowing almost no English and confronted by dozens of hospital visits and painful surgeries Rebeka's incredible bravery and joyful spirit carry her to the opportunity of a lifetime.

This is a stunning novel about hope, perseverance, and what becomes possible when you take a risk.
