This book is found in the juvenile section, however, the topic is HEAVY. It's a book that tells the tale of Salva, one of the lost boys of the Sudan. This is his tumultuous journey to a new life in America. His isn't the only story portrayed in the book though. Linda Sue Park is telling 2 stories in 1 with this short novel. Nya is a sweet girl in Aftica who walks for hours each day to get water for her family. The two tales come together in a beautiful ending that offers hope and encouragement, as well as a desire to help, in the end.
