Lost Girl Found
by Leah Bassoff and Laura DeLuca (Authors)
Booktalk: Poni’s life in her small village in southern Sudan is simple and complicated at the same time. But then the war comes and there is only one thing for Poni to do. Run. Run for her life. Driven by the sheer will to survive and the hope that she can somehow make it to the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, Poni sets out on a long, dusty trek across the east African countryside with thousands of refugees.
Snippet: I have accepted the fact the no one is coming to save me or offer me a ride. I keep walking on my tattered feet toward Kakuma. This place is no longer real. Only a word, a hope.
