Daniel is a 16-year old American boy who wants to enter a photography contest. He travels to French Guyana, where he visits his uncle’s family and also explores this diverse and intriguing country. On a day trip he meets Carmen, a girl with exceptional eyes. He wants to find Carmen again because he thinks he can win the contest with a picture of her. But he doesn’t see her again, until one day…

Daniel frequently expresses his points of view about the cultural differences between the United States and the new country that he is discovering.

"I like the fact that this book offers a genuine impression of the country and its people, even though we see it through the eyes of a visitor. What is special in this story is that the visitor has more empathy for people in different situations than the inhabitants of the country themselves."
