* “Wonderfully telling scenes evoke the time, the place, and—more subtly—the deep-running emotions that these people, bound by customs and besieged by troubles, were so rarely free to acknowledge.”—Kirkus Reviews, pointer review “Ms. Choi writes of social, political and personal hurts in a context few young Americans today have experienced. Yet she tells of more than dislocation: she tells of Sookan’s personal growth, indeed her triumph.”—New York Times

Sookan, the unforgettable heroine of Year of Impossible Goodbyes, is now fifteen years old and a refugee in Pusan, a city in a southern province of Korea. The Korean War is raging, and she once again has been separated from her father and brothers. Anxiously awaiting any news of them, Sookan imagines a time when she can return to a normal life in Seoul. In the meantime, though she often feels sad, alone, and scared, she finds solace in a forbidden friendship and from the mysterious “shouting poet” who offers her and her fellow refugees inspiration each morning.

From the Back Cover:

How terrible the word refugee sounds. Through tear-filled eyes, Sookan stares down at her torn shoes and dirty clothes, and fingers her hair, which has not been washed since she and her mother and younger brother fled the bombing in Seoul three days before. The unforgettable heroine of Year of Impossible Goodbyes is now fifteen years old and newly arrived in Pusan, a city in a southern province of Korea. The Korean War is raging, and Sookan has again been separated from her father and older brothers. Often she feels sad, alone, and scared.

Then she meets an intriguing boy named Junho, who is quiet, thoughtful, and handsome, and the two develop a special but forbidden relationship. Times are changing, but are they changing fast enough to allow their friendship to grow?

Here is Sookan's story.

-- "[A] haunting sequel....[Choi] has once again succeeded in putting a very human face on a tragic episode of world history. this inspirational work possesses a confidence and quiet triumph with universal reverberations."

-- Publishers Weekly, Starred
