About this title

Synopsis:

In a sequel to Year of Impossible Goodbyes, Sookan, now fifteen, is a refugee again and survives the repressive Japanese and Russian occupation of North Korea in the 1940s by making a dangerous escape to freedom. Reprint. K. PW. VY. AB.

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
