I thought the book was good it had alot of twist and turns. I loved that it had a lot of detail in the book and it shared every little thing. I really didn’t like how it never told us what happend with loungs dad all it said was they took him away so i don’t know if he died or not. it was sad when loung had to get separated from her family to a camp. it made me angry in the beginning of the book when loung was really annoying and stubborn. i understand now that Cambodia was under a lot of communism that’s why theirs a lot of war during the book. i understand a lot of the book now that i finished it up. i would recommend this to people who like war and child slaves.
