Let's talk about it!

Kristi Killian chaidez | 2 comments I enjoyed how the book wraps up the stories together. I just wish there was more details to both stories

Sarah | 3 comments This book was really good and touching. At first I was confused with the Nya story line and how it had to do with Salva but I did like how the author ties them both together at the end. Did any one else struggle with the connection between Salva and Nya?

Tabitha Scott | 1 comments I was not all that impressed with this book just because how the story was written and seemed rushed so I was confused most of the time but I did like the twist ending.

Chelsea Mack | 1 comments I enjoyed the book. I have never read anything about the countries of Africa before. I loved that it was a true story. It helped me be happy and thankful for all that I have.

Kristi Killian chaidez | 2 comments I wish the epilogue was at the beginning of the book instead of the end. I think it would of created more interest for how they met. At the very least, more back ground on Salva and how his story is a bibliography.

Kerstin New | 3 comments I really enjoyed this book and the point of view! I liked the history aspect of it and how it was from the kid's perspective. The fact that it was a true story was touching.

I felt the author could have tied the stories together better!

Krystal Whaley | 2 comments I truly enjoyed this book. I feel it would be great for the older students to read, showing them how lucky they are to live in a well developed country. Most in our country are affected by the recent wars, but none like Salva. Many children in America know struggle, but can they relate with Nya? I enjoyed the journal/diary style of the chapters.

Krystal Whaley | 2 comments It was a very touching story. I loved how it connected history with modern times from the same area.

For me it made the story more touching and sometimes sad to know that it was written from a child's point of view and that their are children today still going through this :'(

I 100% agree! For most of the book I was so confused on how these two stories were related.
