Jag r fdd i Brasiliens vildmark och bodde i en grotta tills jag var ungefr fem r gammal. Drefter flyttade min mamma och jag in till en av So Paulos mnga kkstder en rent livsfarlig milj fr ett barn att vxa upp i. Jag fick tidigt lra mig att inte lita p polisen eller andra vuxna. Ofta fick jag klara mig sjlv och jag fick ven ansvara fr min lillebror innan jag slutligen hamnade p barnhem. Ett r senare, nr jag var tta r, adopterades jag bort till en familj i Vindeln i Vsterbotten. Christina berttar om sitt liv som gatubarn i Brasilien, om svlt, misshandel och separation. Om uppvxten i Sverige och alla kulturkrockar som uppstod nr hon kom till det lilla samhllet i Norrland. Hur hon har bearbetat sina upplevelser i vuxen lder och brjat bygga upp ett nytt liv. Och nr hon behver fylla p med kraft och energi har hon ett speciellt knep: Hon kastar sig ut frn ett flygplan och faller fritt i sextio sekunder innan fallskrmen vecklas ut.

Sluta aldrig gå - Från gatan i Sao Paulo till Vindeln i Norrland Reviews
I got this book through Amazon Prime First, or whatever the program is called. I'll admit, it was the best option for me of the six that were offered, but wasn't something I would have gone looking for.
That said, I found myself curious enough about the book to pick it right up to read and I found it fascinating. Christina does a wonderful job building a picture of her life in Brazil and giving enough of her current life details to get an understanding of her motivations.

As a Brazilian, one year younger than the author, I need to clarify some points. I understand her pain and her suffering, but as she was a kid, she did not understand the historical and economic context.
In the end of 80s, Brazil faced one of the worst economic crisis of the History of Economy. Until that moment, it was the second worst of the History (compared to Germany after First World War). Inflation reached more 1000% per month and we were the most unequal country of the world.

I really enjoyed reading this story of accomplishment and survival. It is well written and very cohesive. She has contributed greatly to our world.
Definitely a walk to remember...
I think this book can go a long way to help those in first world countries better understand the social injustice of poverty and the inner turmoil of those who struggle to survive it; and how that turmoil does not end if they are lucky enough to escape such poor living conditions. Christina/Christiana makes it clear you can't really escape the big influences on your life. I am proud of her for continuing on and confronting these tough memories. I got the most out ...more
This is a really good read that gets you thinking how lucky you are and that everyone has a story.
As a child Christiana/Christine lived in the jungle and on the streets of Brazil. The life she lived there is horrific and shocking. The level of violence she endured is unimaginable to me. At 8, she is adopted to a loving family in Sweden. Although this turns out to be a good thing, the way she and her brother are taken away from her mother is disturbing and heartbreaking. The second half of the book is devoted to her trip back to Brazil and her reuniting with her mother. Even this chapter of h ...more
Amazing and thought-provoking story about a girl who grew up as a street child in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and at age 8 was adopted to a Swedish family. Now she is telling her story and working on making a difference in the world.
This was a Kindle first book and in some ways, it's quite remarkable. The story about a young girl from the Brazilian favela who is adopted by a Swedish family is unusual (at least for me, an American reader). Kindle first books are often hit-or-miss, and this is no exception.
What I liked: Through this story, I got to see and experience the favela and the caves as well as life in modern-day Sweden. I particularly enjoyed how the author describes her experiences as a child would see and understan ...more
