This news is about two sisters. They are from Bolivia. They are only three and nine years old when a volcano erupts.

20,000 people die. The volcano destroys the sisters’ town. The event separates the sisters. Different people adopt them. This happens in 1985.

Thirty years later, one of the sisters is in a video. She talks about her family. She wants to find them.

The other sister sees the video. She finds her sister. The two sisters meet again. They have 30 years to talk about! They are also trying to find their parents.

Difficult words: volcano (a mountain which can sometimes explode), erupt (to explode), separate (to be in two or more groups).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
