really liked it

This book will grab you right away and not let go, taking you back to the horrors in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge. Based on Ratner's own experiences, the story of Raami and her family is one of desperation, horror and hope. She brings the atrocities carried out by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge to vivid life. Her writing is honest, beautiful and believable. You will be moved from the revulsion of the horrors of political unrest to the glory of hope. This debut should be on many Top 10 lists come the end of 2012.
