Born a humble girl in what is now Albania, Agnes Bojaxhiu lived a charitable life. She pledged herself to a religious order at the age of 18 and chose the name Sister Teresa, after the patron saint of missionaries. While teaching in India, where famine and violence had devastated the poor, Teresa shed her habit and walked the streets of Calcutta tending to the needs of the destitute. Her charity work soon expanded internationally, and her name remains synonymous with compassion and devotion to the poor.

This book was a good book to read because it gave a lot of information about what mother Teresa did to help other people in need. It even talked about her childhood and what she did as a grown up.I a couple connections because mother Teresa helped the poor and other people in need,and if I see a poor person on the street and walk pass I might give them a dollar if I have one. I give this book a four star because it gave a lot of information about what she did. I just wish it gave more information about her childhood.
