I think this book was very touching. Especially, when Chu Ju decided to follow Han Na's word and not coming back to the home, I was very impressed with Han Na's determination and also how much she trusts Han Na. I was also surprised with Chu Ju's determination when she went out from the home in order to save her sister due to one-child policy. I think this book was terrific.
