"I can give advice to anyone interested in writing in one word: Read! I think it's much more important to be a reader than to be a writer!"

Linda Sue Park

Linda Sue Park's novels are inspirational, including my personal favorite out of all her children's books is A Long Walk To Water. In this Novel you can get the knowledge of a true story but also experience the true life of a child, Salva, in which he suffered losing his family in a war, and had to survive a vast journey throughout his life. Linda Sue Park's books are so inspiring, it would let you imagine being in the eyes of the story.

"A Long Walk to Water shows you how Salva’s story and Nya’s story are related even though they take place 25 years apart."
