Now Is the Time for Running
Michael Williams
When tragedy strikes, Deo's love of soccer is all he has left. Can he use that gift to find hope once more? Just down the road from their families, Deo and his friends play soccer in the dusty fields of Zimbabwe, cheered on by Deo's older brother, Innocent. It is a day like any other ..until the soldiers arrive and Deo and Innocent are forced to run for their lives, fleeing the wreckage of their village for the distant promise of safe haven. Along the way, they face the prejudice and poverty that await refugees everywhere, and must rely on the kindness of people they meet to make it through. Relevant, timely, and accessibly written, Now Is the Time For Running is a staggering story of survival that follows Deo and his mentally handicapped older brother on a transformative journey that will stick with readers long after the last page.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Michael WilliamsPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 03/12/2013ISBN: 9780316077880Pages: 240Weight: 0.45lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.40w x 0.70dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 146533 / Billion Dollar Soccer Ball/Now Is the Time for RunningReading Level: 4.3 / Interest Level: Upper Grade / Point Value: 7
