Some books make you say, "Wow..." And that one little word says it all about the book Running for My Life by Olympic athlete Lopez Lomong. Born in Sudan, given a name that literally means "fast", kidnapped by guerrilla soldiers at the age of six - and that's just the first chapter!
The story of Lopez Lomong's journey to America, and eventually to the Olympic games, will move you. Through smiles and tears, this book allows you to experience life on the other side of the world, and to see the America we take for granted through new eyes. It may even change your life.
I hope you consider reading Running for My Life. It is very easy to read, flows nicely, and is written by a young man who has one of the most positive outlooks on life that I have ever encountered. I cannot say enough good things about it.
On my 'Page Turner Scale' of 1 to 5, I give this book a 5.

Day 221 done :)
