A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story by Linda Sue Park

I read A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park in just one day. It is a quick read, but is one that really makes you think about what you have and what you take for granted. This book is about a boy named Salva and a girl named Nya. Salva’s story takes place in 1985 and Nya’s takes place in 2008. Salva has to leave his home when the war in Sudan moves into his village. Nya spends most of her day walking to the pond to get water for her family, and she wants to do something more than that. This is their stories, which end up connecting. I enjoyed reading this book, and even though it is aimed towards a younger audience I was not too old for it. This book teaches a lesson about taking for granted what you have and tells a story that needs to be heard. I would recommend this book for 5th graders and up.
