The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa, Complete Edition

Children/Young Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa, is a story that takes place on six different continents where our hero, Marco, invests in a gold mine stock, corners the market in corn, and makes over $500,000. That’s right, over half a million dollars. By the way, he’s only 12 years old. However, it is also the story of children in war torn Africa, of marauding gangs of thugs, burning and pillaging. It’s a story of disease, of the lack of food, clean water, and medicine. Marco, along with his pen-pals from all over the world, learns of the plight of these less fortunate children in Africa. A daring way is devised to come to their rescue. The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa tells of courage, of adventure, and of how one boy can begin to save the world, one small step at a time.

At my inner-city public school students, who do not literally rush home to read a book, chose to do just that. “The Kid Who Beat Wall Street and Saved Africa” has turned self-proclaimed "non-readers" into bookworms!

Kirkus Review

“Marco is an excellent role model for kids, and this book shows that one person can indeed make a difference in the lives of others. An earnest and sometimes inspiring story of an extraordinary middle schooler.‘…A millennial Ferris Bueller.’”
