Published 2000

310 Pages

Paperback

Until the age of five, Loung Ung lived in Phnom Penh, one of seven children of a

high ranking government official. She was a precocious child who loved the

open city market, fried chicken, chicken fights, and riling her parents.

When Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge army stormed into Phnom Penh in April 1975,

the Ung family fled their home and moved from village to village in an effort

to hide their identity, their education, and their former life of privilege.

In order to survive, the family dispersed - Loung to a work camp where she

was trained as a child soldier and her siblings to labour camps.

As the Vietnamese penetrated CAMBODIA, destroying the Khmer Rouge,

Loung and her surviving siblings were slowly reunited.

Bolstered by the shocking bravery of one brother, the vision of the other,

and sustained by her sister's gentle kindness and brutality, Loung forged

on to create for herself a courageous life.

An incredible true story, great read.
