An unforgettable new story from the winner of the prestigious Newbery Medal AwardTwo young people, two stories, one country – Sudan.Home for just long enough to eat, Nya would now make her second trip to the pond. To the pond and back – to the pond and back – nearly a full day of walking altogether. This was Nya’s daily routine seven months of the year. Daily. Every single day.Salva ran until he could not run anymore. Then he walked. For hours, until the sun was nearly gone from the sky. As Salva walked, the same thoughts kept going through his head in rhythm with his steps. Where are we going? Where is my family?When will I see them again?This mesmerising dual narrative by Newbery medallist Linda Sue Park shows us that in a troubled country, determined survivors may find the future they are hoping for.
