Chika Jeune came into Mitch Albom's life by chance. Growing up in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 Haiti earthquake, at three years old she tragically lost her mother and was brought to the orphanage run by Mitch and his wife, Janine.

Chika made a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, she delighted those around her. But everything changed when Chika was diagnosed with a terminal disease that no doctor in Haiti could treat.

This discover sparked a two-year, around-the-world journey in search of a cure. Chika's boundless optimism and humour taught Mitch that a relationship built on love can never be lost.

This is Mitch Albom at his most poignant, powerful and personal. Chika is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed - a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made.

Oh Chika -you have my heart!

Through sniffles (and full on bawling) I made the commitment to find out who Chika was and what her journey entailed. Mitch Albom exquisitely tells his story of finding Chika in Haiti at the orphanage he (and purchasers of this book) supports. From finding out she was sick, bringing her to America to seek treatment and memorializing her last days, this book will break your heart and put it back together again. Albom highlights the lessons he learned for his adopted daughter. Much like his previous books, these are lessons everyone can benefit from. I highly recommend the audiobook, read by Mitch himself and intertwined with Chika’s young loving and defiant voice. Hearing her sing lullaby’s and religious songs really brings Chika back to life for the reader. If you love Alboms other books, you’ll love Finding Chika the most
