A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park

This #1 New York Times bestselling novel tells the gripping tale of two Sudanese children, Nya and Salva, separated by time but united by their resilience. Nya fetches water daily from a distant pond, while Salva becomes one of Sudan's 'lost boys,' enduring perilous journeys across Africa. Their stories converge in a moving narrative of survival and hope, inspired by the real-life journey of Salva Dut, founder of Water for South Sudan.
