based on a true story by Lani Wendt Young

“The White Truck” recounts the removal and isolation of a leprosy patient in Sāmoa. The story expertly engages the reader by providing clues without explicitly stating what the issue is. Students will connect with Timu and Moana and feel empathy as the events unfold.
