Great Portrayal submitted by tree64 on July 14, 2011, 6:56pm This book wonderfully portrays how life was like in Korea back when the Japanese had seized control of it during World War II. I think that everbody should read it, and that it is very meaningful.

Great submitted by leehannah on July 18, 2012, 9:16pm This book was sad but amazing at the same time. I learned quite a lot and Linda Sue Park does an excellent job of telling the story. I really like the books that she wrote. I found this one particularly interesting because it talks about the Korean Occupation.

Awesome submitted by jangmikyoung on July 18, 2012, 9:28pm This book was really good. It was sad, but it was still very interesting. I learned a lot about the Korean Occupation. I really felt like I was involved in the story and that I was actually there.
