Book of the Month- What is the What

Hey Bloggers! I just wanted to take a second to recommend a book by Dave Eggers called "What is the What"....It recounts the story of a Sudanese man named Valentino Achak who was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan. The book is really sad as it goes into detail about how Valentino was separated from his family during the bloody Sudanese Civil War and forced to fend for himself until he finally makes it to America. Here we see, through his eyes how lucky we are to live in a society where we have everything which we sometimes take for granted.
This book really opened my eyes to the pain and suffering a man can endure and still remain human. Simply Amazing.
