Inocente is a fifteen-year-old undocumented immigrant, who has been homeless for the last nine years. She refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be limited by her status. The extraordinary sweep of color on her canvas creates a revolutionary world that looks nothing like her own dark past. Irreverent, flawed, and funny, she now channels her irrepressible personality into a future of her own making. The hope in her story proves that her circumstances do not define her, her dreams do.

There is only one free state-of-the-art cardiac hospital in Africa: the Salam Center in Sudan. Eight Rwandan children embark on a life or death journey there to receive open-heart surgery. Their heart valves are damaged from rheumatic fever, the result of untreated strep throat. Open Heart reveals the touching and inspiring stories of the children, and those who treat them —Dr. Emmanuel, Rwanda’s lone public cardiologist, and Dr. Gino Strada, the Salam Center’s Head Surgeon and Founder.
