Review By a Nine Year Old Who Loves Books:
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2017
In 2008 Nya has to walk a super long distance to get water for her family. Salva who is a refugee during the 1985 war has to make a long journey to find safety. Life is hard for them both in Sudan. The stories are 25 years apart but the book talks about how their stories intersect. It is good for grades 3+,age 8+ and family and also people who like historical fiction.It is also good to learn about the importance of water. It saves lives,helps people, and brings us together by giving water to help them to lead a good life. I recommend this book because it has good examples of leadership. It is so different than any other book I have read. It is the kind of book that sucks you in then you slow down to savor it.
