    Based on a true story, A Long Walk to Water is a New York Times bestseller that has become a must-read for many schools and educators. Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park tells the narratives of a boy and a girl growing up in Sudan more than two decades apart from one another. While their ages and origins may be similar, there storyline is anything but. Nya’s story centers around her journey to the pond each day in 2008 to fetch water. The young girl has to walk two hours just to reach the pond and then carry the water back. To make matters worse, Nya has to make this trip twice a day. For Salva, who lives in Sudan in 1985, he doesn’t have the pleasure of walking to get water. Instead, Salva is a “lost boy” who has to walk the entire continent of Africa in the hopes of finding his family and a new home. Though the endless traveling is difficult in itself, he also has to deal with armed rebels and other attackers like vicious lions and crocodiles. Despite the difference in time periods, the two protagonists’ stories end up crossing, creating a beautiful and intertwined story. The social awareness and historical focus, combined with the young protagonists, make this the perfect book for middle school students, or readers with a 10 to 12-year-old reading level.

      They had a GREAT price

      Posted by Gayle on Jan 4th 2018

      They had a GREAT price on the novel we were searching for. Their service was perfect and we are thrilled to have the books on hand and ready for students when we begin our Africa unit in World Cultures class. The sales staff and customer service employees were quick to respond to all of my questions and the email correspondence was prompt and efficient. I will definitely use BookPal again in the future!

      BookPal will be the first place I check when I need to order books in the future.

      Posted by Jeannie on Jan 26th 2017

      Purchasing books through Book Pal was not only easy but also provided the best deal for buying multiple copies of the same title. The books arrived in great condition and before the expected time. I received a follow-up email from Josina Lawrence, account manager. She offered her contact information should we need assistance with other orders. I immediately sent her link to our schools should they need to purchase other books. BookPal will be the first place I check when I need to order books in the future.
