Sonlove is a bright fifteen year old who lives in the village of Michel near Galette Chambon. He lives with his aunt and his cousin Daylove who is also looking for a sponsor. Sonlove lost his mother when he was ten and went to live with his aunt. He and his cousin are best friends and consider themselves brothers. He loves to learn and he wants desperately to go to school, but he knows that there is no way for him to continue school if he doesn’t have a sponsor. He and his cousin both hope to find sponsors so that they can walk to school together and study together and rise above the poverty that their families have always lived in. Sonlove is most excited about studying English when he goes to the high school. When he grows up he wants to become an attorney.
