So far what I read about the book ¨A Long walk to water¨ is really interesting because it talks about how the girl Nya and the boy Salva survive. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home. She makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the “lost boys” of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay.  Salva doesn’t know where his family is while Nya doesn’t know if her family will have enough water. Both of them are afraid of meeting an enemy.
