Right now I am reading the book Children of the River by Linda Crew. The book is about a girl name Sundara who has just fled Cambodia with her aunt’s family and is trying to fit in at an American high school. I really like this book because it shows us how different our lives are than many other people, and that we should be grateful for what we have because some people don’t even know if their family is alive anymore.
I was in the library looking for the sequel to a different book that I had just finished when I found this book. I read the back and it sounded really interesting. Also, Children of the River won the International Reading Association Award so I figured that it would be a great book.
This book is not for everyone, but if you like fiction and are okay with reading a pretty long book, than I think you would like this book.
