Memoir of a Thirteen-Year-Old Girl

Surviving the Cambodian Genocide

I love this book. It's the story of a young girl and her family as they find themselves in peril after the Khmer Rouge invaded their town and nothing in their lives is ever the same. It's a thought provoking story showing how a resilient girl and her family deal with their devastation. While the situations are drastically different from the life they had always known, the author's voice is still warm and filled with unexpected moments of joy.
