I won an ARC of this book in a goodreads giveaway. This is a heartbreaking novel of Cambodian genocide told through the eyes of a child who has to grow much older in years in a short time. The author has a beautiful way with words and will be recommending to those who aren't afraid to read something heartwrenching.
