I loved that the author chose to write this story through the perspective of a South Vietnamese girl during the Veitnam war. It almost made me cry when I read about how she watched her mother die and how she always remembered the last words her mother told her, "Don't be afraid. I will always be with you."

This would be a fantastic book to read to students to show them how not only did the American's lose many lives and struggle during the Vietnam War, but so did the Vietnamese. It's important to them that we were not fighting against all of Vietnam. We were trying to protect South Vietnam from communist North Vietnam. We got involved in Vietnam's civil war.

It could also be used for children who are having a hard time dealing with losing a loved one.
