    This book was super historical, good, intense, and taught lessons of courage, persistence, patience, and change. We need to help those who come after us to have opportunities.

    A friend recommended this book to me. After I read this book I was so glad I read A Long Walk to Water. I was just so amazed how Linda Sue Park emphasizes the characters. This book is just so detailed on how each character feels. Linda Sue Park makes it so easy to think of you as the character. This book is about this boy that loses his family during this war. The boy has this adventure finding his parents. Then there is a girl who is just scared of the war. The boy and the girl end up meeting. They learn things from each other and it's really touching. I have to say you must read this book! Also suggested: Death By Toilet Paper
