Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal by Conor Grennan
The writer of this book, Conor Grennan, stops in Nepal for three months to start off a year-long trek around the world. In Nepal, he works at an orphanage where he learns that the children are not orphans. Their parents are still alive. Grennan learns about, and is appalled by, the child trafficking that brought all of the children to the orphanage. He leaves after three months, but that's not the end of his story in Nepal. He returns and is determined to find the families of the children.
I really liked this book. It was inspiring, heartbreaking, and hopeful. Some parts made me tear up, and I learned quite a bit about Nepal. Highly recommended.
