I read this aloud to my Chinese born, American raised kids and amidst the grumbling over Mom s teaching us again , came a sudden moment of silence, and then Mom, please read, And then the conversations started This is a beautifully told story, at times horrifying sad, but it s one that our privileged American tweens need to hear The parallel story lines are fascinating, and the understanding of tribal cultures and each child s place in their tribe are fascinating We will pay it forward by donating to Salva s nonprofit organization What an amazing accomplishment Thank you. This was for my 7th grade son was assigned to read in school This was the first book my son had ever finished, talked about and even read note than he was assigned to do My son is dyslexic which makes reading a book laborious or even impossible I bought the feature that reads it to him which he loved and made it interesting since they had music and the reader used different voices for each character It also highlighted the words as it read and for words that are hard it give the definition Amazing it opens up a whole new world for struggling readers. Il viaggio di una vita incredibile dove l ultimo degli uomini ha imparato quello che tanti non impareranno mai Un esempio per tutti This was a beautiful story of hard work and determination and perseverance in the face of evil and overwhelming adversity and hardships I have not read a book in a very long time that motivated me to care deeply about global issues, but this book stirred in me a desire to help others.At the beginning of the book, it was a bit confusing trying to understand how the two stories connected But by the end of the book, the way that the author weaves the two stories of Nya and Salva together is incredibly powerful and moving.The author writes beautifully, using vivid imagery and robust descriptions that make the characters and situations easy to relate to even though most of us have never had to experience such hardships The author was careful not to be too graphic in his storytelling which helps to make this story accessible to both younger and older readers.This story teaches lessons of compassion and perseverance and courage I would definitely recommend this book to anyone It provides an incredible perspective on the definition of a hard life and is an inspirational read.
