really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, young-adult

Everything Linda Sue Park writes is elegant. This is a beautifully-written story based on the real life of one of the lost boys of Sudan. Some of the harsh realities are a bit too heavy for my 5th grade girls, but this is absolutely perfect for middle school students. On the audio version, I loved hearing the commentary from a much older Salva, the main character in the book. Definitely a worthwhile read for tweens and teens.
