یه ماجرای واقعی نرم و آروم مثل شن‌های داغ صحرای بزرگ که از دور زیبا و شگفت‌انگیز به نظر میان، اما حتی از دور هم مشخصه که از نزدیک ممکنه از پا درت بیارن.

“I need only to get through the rest of this day. This day and no other.”

Where there is a child, there is always joy. I always thought this was true but the story told otherwise. This is a true to life story of Salva, an 11 year old boy who found little to almost no place in a world where people struggle to survive an almost endless series of conflicts during the Second Sudanese Civil War that started in 1983 .

To adults caught in a tumultuous succession of life threatening obstacles, Salva is a burden, someone who will only slow them down, just another mouth to feed. *sniffs* It’s unbelievable where the young boy found all that courage and will to live. Of the many things I’ve learned from him, it is to cling to hope the wisest possible way that hit me the most.

“He tried not to lose hope. At the same time, he tried not to hope too much.”

Written in a lyrical narrative but easy and timeless style of language allowing the reader to feel more, the story completely seized my heart. The vivid, wistful recollections of the young boy’s perilous journey by foot from Sudan to Ethiopia then later to Kenya were plainly told, nothing very emotional. In fact, the writing style seems to be even a bit dismissive of tragic events as if in a life-sucks-but-hurry-up-and-move-on-now approach but it still brought me to puddles of tears. It’s an inspirational piece of literature that is definitely worth your time.

Thank you to Shanna/Darina for bringing this book to my attention. I had no idea this ever existed before I stalked your profile and of course, I didn’t forget. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY DEAR FRIEND! WISHING YOU A SPECIAL DAY, GOOD HEALTH, HAPPINESS AND MORE GREAT BOOKS TO READ! <3

Quick read good for multiple ability levels.This book should be an easy inclusion into 7th grade Geography, 6th grade world history, or as an addition to a Holocaust unit. This is how I plan to use it with my 7th grade reading teacher. For younger readers, this book may encourage a class to adopt a project to help bring water to children their age in other places in the world.

Book is told from two viewpoints. One is a girl walking each day to get the water her family needs which she carries home in plastic gallon jugs. The trip takes her all day and while not mentioned in the story, this could be a dangerous trip for her. The second viewpoint is from a boy in the 80s who is at school when his village is attacked. He runs into the woods and that is the last of his childhood of living with family or a village. He is in fact one of the Lost Boys.

The two stories come together in an upbeat ending meant to inspire the reader to make a better world.

Parks intended this book for children to read, so there is not the terror or violence that this book could contain. It does contain some difficult situations -- a boy carried off by a lion in the night, the burning of a village, etc.

I would read this book before handing it to a student younger than 6th grade.

One more comment, because the book ends with an addendum about an elementary school putting a well in the girls village, students may want to initiate a project like the one in the book. Be careful if you do this with the kids, so that your money really goes to putting in a well, and not in some warlords pocket. Rotary does projects like this -- and others of course -- and that might be the way to go.

There are some stories that need to be told regardless of how sad or horrifying they might be. The challenge becomes even harder when the stories are being told to children. How much should one include? What details are necessary and what can be left out without changing the story too much? And what about stories that involve extreme violence and severe suffering? How best to tell the story? These questions can be debated over and over again because there is no one right answer. No two authors will present the same story in the same way.

This book follows two main characters, Nya, a child living in Southern Sudan, who must spend every day walking to and from a pond bringing water to her family, and Salva, who twenty-three years earlier became a refugee when his village was attacked by soldiers from the north. The story about Salva is the longer of the two and follows the eleven-year-old as he runs from his school and must somehow cross hundreds of miles of desert, swamp, and forest to reach safety. After six years in the refugee camp, Salva faces terror once again as the Ethiopian soldiers force all the Sudanese refugees back into Sudan, killing hundreds in the process. But Salva finds the strength and hope to survive and becomes a leader among what has become known as the Lost Boys of the Sudan. These boys were orphans who struggled to survive on their own. Some of these boys were able to find a way to not only survive, but to help those left behind. Salvas story intersects with Nyas in an interesting way, showing that the efforts of one can have a far-reaching effect.

While the book does explain some of the horrors that the Lost Children of the Sudan and the other refugees faced, it does not do so in a graphic way, and the story is not about despair or violence, its about hope, which makes the book great to share with students who face their own challenges.

This novel is divided into two alternating narratives that come together in the end. In brown print is the story, set in 2008, of Nya, a young girl from Sudan who has to walk 8 hours round trip to fetch water every day, twice a day. In black print is the story of Salva, a young Sudanese boy whose village is attacked by the rebels in 1985 and who ends up fleeing across the desert to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. After witnessing many horrors, he and other @lost boys,@ homeless and orphaned, walk back across Sudan to refugee camps in Kenya. Salvas story takes place from 1985, when he is eleven, until his path crosses with Nyas in 2009. It is based on the true story of a man whom the author knows, the real Salva Dut, who eventually was flown to Rochester, New York, to begin his life anew. How does Salva come to meet Nya? Read and find out! Salvas story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, as the reader laments that children should have to experience such terrible things and also marvels that a child could be so courageous. Highly recommended, especially combined with Mary Williams Brothers in Hope: the Story of the Lost Boys of Sudan, Alice Meads Year of No Rain, and Katherine Applegates Home of the Brave.

Absolutely an astonishing story that I believe can inspire anyone at any age. When youve read about Nya and Salvas dilemmas in life, you really cant say your life is not good. Ask yourself this: Is it really miserable, or are you just not being grateful of what you have? What inspired me the most was the fact that Salva had kept hope and perseverance throughout this dangerous and terrible life. He was able to find a four leaf clover in forest. His uncles strategy of solving problems and reaching towards a goal is in his blood. This book is so inspirational that it is in my blood, too :)
