    John and Martha, as children growing up in Sudan in the 1980s, both find themselves caught in the midst of a growing civil war Both are forced to flee their homes, and travel hundreds of miles on foot, suffering thirst, hunger, and sickness, in order to find safety in Ethiopia But their refuge proves only temporary, when a new government takes charge of Ethiopia, the refugees are violently forced back into Sudan, where war still rages Both John and Martha find the courage and hope to survive despite their awful circumstances And both John and Martha survive to build better lives for themselves.The book does describe many violent acts, including deaths involving animals and warfare, but they are not graphically portrayed If you decide to use the book in a classroom, you ll want to pre read to make sure the material is appropriate for your students The story is a powerful one, about survival, hope, and the difference that one person or group of people can make.

    Truly inspiring book An excellent book for students In our society where kids are for the most part spoiled with all the conveniences of life and sometimes feel entitled it can teach respect, appreciation and humility.
