Gemetro is a bright young man from the town of Bonet and his best friend is Gefferson. They walk a long way to school every day together. Gemetro lives with his parents, one sister, and four brothers. His parents are share croppers on a large farm in a village near Bonet. Gemetro loves to help his parents work the field when it is harvest time and he likes to study when he’s in school. His favorite subject in school is mathematics and he wants to one day become a mechanic and work on the large trucks that transport rocks. Two of his brothers drive these trucks for a company in Port au Prince and they are always having trouble with their trucks, so he wants to be able to help them keep working so they can help the family.
