Wonderful! Though difficult to read, it should probably be required reading. ( )

This is an extremely moving account of 2 very different storing interconnecting that restores your faith in humanity. It's a very quick read with back and forth voices between the 2 main characters, Nya and Salva. Both characters are children and the story is written very simply. I'd guess this would be recommended for ages 9 - adult. I'd recommend that everyone read this story. ( )

This is the true story of Salva Dut. The civil war in Sudan reached Salva's village in 1985 when he was 11 years old. He was forced to flee and became separated from his family. All alone, he must walk with other refugees through southern Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya to finally end up many years later in the U.S. The story details his walk through the desert and many dangers and disappointments that happened during his journey. He is one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan. At the same time, the book highlights the life of 11 year old Nya in 2008. How these two lives come together is awesome. I was amazed to learn the way people live and the difficulties they must endure in my lifetime. Exellent book. ( )

Darn, my review got deleted! Anyway, I'll try to remember... :

good stories from Africa... If you like human interest stories this should be enjoyable. Not really my thing but, even so, I enjoyed this book. Excellent narrator. ( )

In this book, the story follows a storyline of two different individuals. Salva runs from gunshots at his school, is separated from his family and ends up traveling with a group of lost boys. He ends up in different countries in refugee camps. When he arrives in Kenya, he has the opportunity to go to the United States. Salva is able to attend college in the United States and is able to achieve a fair amount of success. The book also follows the story of Nya traveling back and forth to the water source to get water for her family. Nya's job was to get water for her family both in their village and in their lake camp where they travel to spend five months of the year (during the dry season). Because Salva has achieved some success and financial security, he decides to help his home country. Read this book to find out what he does to help his home country and how that might impact Nya.
