Exchange: Anecdotes of an American Host Family & Their Foreign Exchange Student
Hannah Overly, author
Exchange chronicles the journey my family & I experienced when we hosted a Brazilian foreign exchange student for eleven months. Initially, we had basic ideas of what we could offer but we never anticipated the ways in which we would grow, as we navigated between simple joys and nuanced challenges of welcoming a stranger into our home. Exchange highlights what ultimately unites people: compassion, commitment, understanding and a sense of humor.
