A Long Walk to Water Linda Sue Park Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about two eleven-year-olds in Sudan, a girl in 2008 and a boy in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.

    This was a book my future 5 grade teacher picked. I thought the book was gonna be about family and going to the lake or something but ended up being a book about southern Sudan I was surprised A lot .i recommend this book you’ll learn stuff and be addicted to it( like they say on game commercials) but the love for this book is real .I want to read every book of Linda sue Parker because I think she is a talented book writer. I thank my future 5th grade teacher for picking this book and Linda Sue Parker for writing this book . Thank you

    My English teacher chose this book for our class to read and man thank you for that. It’s a great book maybe not chapters 10 or 11. That made my whole class very upset. If you read it you understand. All in all no doubt 5 Stars I wish I could rate it even better. Also put yourself in one of the main characters shoes could you go through all of this or would you not make it. Also what is this book teaching us. How nature has many effects on people, love of family urges you on, or go war takes away every rule. It makes you think in an assignment I had we had to figure out the theme their were 12 we had to rate by but it was hard because this book has many different themes try and come up with one. This book is amazing.
