Debroah Ellis was able to bring aknowledgement to her readers of the epidemic of HIV/AIDS in Africa as well as poverty through her characters. The story takes place in Malawi, Africa where Binti, her sister Junie, and her brother lose their dad to AIDS. The author brought out many emotions in me while reading the book. I was angry to see the siblings relatives take everything they own, sad to see that Junie had resorted to prositiution to attain money for her family and as a result contracted AIDS continuing the vicious cycle. I was also very upset that such terrible things are happening in our world.

Deb knew she had to turn that story into a book. After her critically acclaimed books of interviews with Afghan, Iraqi, Israeli and Palestinian children, Deborah Ellis turns her attention closer to home. The result was the Breadwinner novels, about young Parvana and her best friend, Shauzia. Selected for the Cooperative Children's Book Center Choices. Selected for the Bank Street College of Education’s Children’s Books of the Year. For two years she traveled across the United States and Canada interviewing Indigenous youth. The result is a compelling collection of interviews with children aged nine to eighteen.

There is a lion in our village, and it is carrying away our children.

At her father's funeral, Binti's grandmother utters the words that no one in Malawi wants to hear. Binti's father and her mother before him, dies of AIDS. Binti, her sister, and brother are separated and sent to the home of relatives who can barely tolerate their presence. Ostracized by their extended family, the orphans are treated like the lowest servants. With her brother far away and her sister wallowing in her own sorrow, Binti can hardly contain her rage. She, Binti Phirim, was once a child star of a popular radio program. Now she is scraping to survive. Binti always believed she was special, now she is nothing but a common AIDS orphan.

Binti Phiri is not about to give up. Even as she clings to hope that her former life will be restored, she must face a greater challenge. If she and her brother and sister are to reunited, Binti Phiri will have to look outside herself and find a new way to be special.

Compelling and uplifting, The Heaven Shop, is a contemporary novel that puts a very real face on the African AIDS pandemic, which to-date has orphaned more than 11 million African children. Inspired by a young radio performer the author met during her research visit to Malawi, Binti Phiri is a compelling character that readers will never forget.

When I started the book, I thought it was a bit sappy. But within the first 30 pages it quickly turns from sappy to heart wrenching. Binti, a Malawi teenager, faces major changes to her way of life, transitioning from a carefree "radio star" to an effectual slave. Though this book is a fairly simple read, the content the author deals with is intense. The book is focused around the issue of AIDS in Africa, misconceptions about AIDS, how AIDS is spread, and the inadequacies of the community in dealing with the issues AIDS presents. I think it is a great read to help students see the faces off AIDS as opposed to just the statistics about AIDS.

This is one of the best books I've ever read about life in southern Africa, where many people struggle every day of their lives to find food and shelter. Deborah Ellis creates memorable characters who interact with one another in many different ways, running the gamut from sheer cruelty to deep compassion and heartfelt love. The book captures many aspects of the universal human condition, and leaves the reader feeling thoughtful, inspired, and daring to hope.

Oh, my gosh! What a heartrending book about a young girl's plight in Malawi, Africa, where 25% of the populations of the capital city is infected with aids. It's a gentle, coming of age story, but it doesn't hide reality. If you plan to travel to Africa, or even if not, read this book. You may be heartbroken, but the truth and the love of this one girl is amazing. It's very short, some could read it in a single sitting.

I had seen this book recommended and decided to get it. I really enjoyed reading it. It helps you to see that there are so many people in this world that truly have nothing. I feel very blessed

The book Heaven Shop, by Deborah Ellis, is a complicated book. It is set in Malawi. The main character, Binti, starts out living in Blantyre. Later, her uncle takes her and her sister to live with him in Lilongwe. Then she moves to where her Gogo is, in a village outside of Blantyre.

For the first couple scenes, their dad Bambo is sick. She is living with Kwasi, her older brother; and Junie, her older sister. Later, Bambo dies. Binti and Junie go live with their mean uncle and Kwasi goes with a different uncle. Junie and Binti are not allowed to go to school and are forced to do all the family's dirty work. Then Junie runs away, and tells Binti to go to their grandmother Gogo's house. There are many people living in Gogo's house, most of them young children who were orphaned by AIDS. Once Binti is there, she meets a girl named Memory. Memory's story is very sad: she was raped by a man who thought he could get rid of his AIDS by raping her. He didn't, but he left Memory HIV positive and with a daughter named Beauty. Then Binti hears from a young man named Jeremiah that her brother Kwasi was in prison. With Jeremiah's and Gogo's help, Kwasi is released and he comes to live with Gogo too. Later, Gogo dies. Binti, Memory and Kwasi are left to take care of many AIDS orphans. Then Jeremiah also finds Junie, who was working to entertain truck drivers. She was also HIV positive. So Binti, Kwasi and Jeremiah go to Junie and bring her back to the house. Even though many sad things happen in the book, they start making a coffin shop, and make enough money to buy clothes and blankets and food. The ending is both sad and also hopeful.

I liked this book because everyone changes a little bit in the course of the story. The main characters all go through difficult times, but still end up happy.

Binti is a young star on a Malawi radio show that deals with all sorts of important topics. It turns out that the show is a good way of getting accurate information to their loyal viewers.One story line that receives rapt attention is that of AIDS. While Binti is exceptional in her role, she is blind to the fact that her dear father is living with advanced AIDS. She was too young to realize that her mother had passed away from the disease.

When her father dies, Binti and her siblings are sent to live with unknown relatives. It is only then, that she learns that far too many people in her country don't understand the truth about AIDS; they think they can catch it from her even though she is not infected.

I listened to the audio book version. Red by Jajube Mandela and the RMW Kids. 4 hours 7 minutes.

This story blew me away. I was so touched by Binti's plight and it was even harder when I realized that there are millions of children in Africa that are in her same, and probably even worse situations. Many of these children are being raised by their elderly grandmothers just as Binti came to be. The grandmother did a good job of getting Binti to stop feeling sorry for herself and do something. Do something to improve her lot and that of the other children taken in by her grandmother.
