About this deal

I found myself needing to keep my academic hat firmly in place and remind myself that someone has synthesised this book before it went to print, even though Park professes to have a strong grip on the English language by the time she completed her draft.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This should be a red flag for all of us, since it shows that people look for personal heroes and inspiring success stories whatever the cost.Eventually, with the 'help' of a trafficker, she and her mother cross to China where they are sold for the trafficker to recoup his costs.

These days, a lot of people said North Korea is just a repressive country ruled by a fat dude with bad haircut and threaten to launch nuclear every year as if it’s an anniversary event.Desperation turns to flight, as Yeonmi and her mother are smuggled into China, and to perhaps an even worse fate than starvation as they soon become embroiled in the trafficking and raping of North Korean women to impoverished Chinese farmers. Full of tears and angst, Park does not coat her story with flowery tales and sing-song moments, while transitioning from the darkest corners of one country about which the world knows so little. This is because Chinese gangsters probably don't have any kind of entourage, and they are in need of 13 year olds to keep the business going. And most importantly, as I stated in my review of Ishikawa’s book, these stories emphasize the need of the Good News, the hope of the Gospel, to reach these desolate places.
