Here is the eBook/PDF version of ‘Lili, Lala, and Lila are Looking for…Tifani R…’

 

 

Three adventurous and well-off Haitian girls, Lili, Lala, and Lila set out to rescue a servant girl named Tifani Restavèk from a mean neighbor family who mistreats her and makes her do all kinds of forced labor while their own children, especially KansonFè IronPants, tease her while watching her work her heart out in the stifling Caribbean sun.

These three girls go to private catholic schools in Port-au-Prince. Way before the quake that hit Haiti, the three girls devise a plan to start reading stories to Tifani while she stands by the fence. They want to teach her to read and write.

In general, Restavèks (servant boys and girls whose parents cannot take care of them and were economically forced to let them go live with well-off city dwellers) do not expect to be treated well and go to school. Will these girls ever even get close to Tifani to tell her about their rescue plans? Will Tifani ever know an easy life? Did she survive the quake and its aftershocks?  A miracle would have to happen first.
