Now is the TIme for Running
Transcript of Now is the TIme for Running
-PW (starred review) "A harrowing tale of modern Zimbabwe... gripping, suspenseful and deeply compassionate. Williams, a renowned dramatist, gives readers compelling characters and, in simple language, delivers a complicated story rooted - sadly and upliftingly - in very real events"
-Kirkus (starred review) "Williams skillfully draws the plight of these refugee brothers with both suspense and sympathy, and readers cannot help but root for them in their quest to rebuild their broken lives... Williams joins Beverly Naidoo and Allan Stratton with this incisive portrait of sub-Saharan Africa, a compelling mix of suspense, sports, and social injustice."
-Horn Book This book is awarded the cliff hanger award. This award is given out to books that make you want to continue reading.
This book deserves the CHA because it is written so every time there is a pause in the book there is an anticipation that makes you want to read on until you finish the book. I stayed up very late for two days before I finished this book. It would have taken me three if it had not been written so well. Who I recommend this to I recommend this book for Asher, he is one of my friends and enjoys soccer, running and the outdoors. The book is written so he would enjoy it, he doesn't like to read much so this book would be of optimal length. Its also a very easy read so he wouldn't have to look up and words. It is about soccer which is one of his favorite sports. He also runs fur exercise so he could relate to the running part. The outdoors part is mainly in the tomato farm because he works at Cave of the Mounds and is accustomed to working outside like Deo is. Captain Washington plays a small but important part is this book. He has always been nice to Deo and Innocent. He lets them watch soccer games and when they had to flee their village he let them stay with him. He also got them a ride away from the soldiers. Captain Washington Gut-wrenching and moving... An eye-opening book that cries out to read.
-Carl Dueker We run with Deo, our hearts in our mouths, to the very end.... How lucky we are to get such a read!
