A Long Walk to Water
Author: Park, Linda Sue
Two stories run parallel in this powerfully written true story set in Sudan. Nya in 2008 spends eight hours a day walking to fetch water. Salva, who flees bloodshed during the civil war in Sudan in 1985, is thrown out of a refugee camp in neighboring Ethiopia and leads some 1,200 Lost Boys on the two-year walk across Sudan to Kenya. A very moving book that is too absorbing to put down before the end.
