Walking Home by Eric Walters is a fictional book based off of real events in Kenya. The title and book cover didn’t seem too interesting to me, but the farther I got into the book, the more exciting and breathtaking it got. Eric Walters is known to write realistic fiction novels like The Rule of Thre3, but this one is special because it has educational value, and correctly describes the environment in Kenya during the political war in 2007 and the social tension between the tribes. Walters uses the string as a symbol to lead Muchoki and Jata to find their grandparents. He utilizes the string to further develop his story in a sensible fashion.
