Find Me Unafraid: Love, Loss, and Hope in an African Slum

Kennedy Odede, Jessica Posner

Part adventure, part love, and all true. This is not only a story about the growing romantic love between the unlikely pairing of a Kenyan man and Jewish American woman, but the fierce love a person can have for his community and make it work against all odds. There are many times when you ask yourself, “How can Kennedy survive this?” And it is Kennedy telling you his story. The chapters alternate between Jessica and Kennedy along dual timelines, and they overlap in subtle ways before finally uniting. A beautiful story carefully woven together and bound by love, guaranteed to warm your heart.
