About this title

Synopsis:

The daughter of a former Cambodian government official recounts the family's four years of forced labor and persecution at the hands of the Khmer Rouge

From School Library Journal:

YA A documentary account of the treatment of Cambodians by the Khmer Rouge, written by a keen observor of character and events. Life changed radically for the 15-year-old narrator when the regime took control, turning lives and values upside down. Anyone with education was marked for death; the people of the cities were driven into the countryside to a life of forced agricultural labor under harsh conditions. Positions of responsibility were given to the uneducated and unskilled. As a matter of survival, Teeda learned to hide any sign of her previous education and urban way of life. Although her father was killed, the rest of her family managed to stay together, and her close family relationships sustained Teeda throughout her adolescence. The story of her escape is suspenseful, and the book is sure to hold the interest of teenagers. A fine addition to collections of Southeast Asian history and biography, and a good focus for the study of values. Rita G. Keeler, St. John's School, Houston
