it was amazing
Read in June, 2010

Every American should read this book. Denise Chong has a way of telling a story that transcends barriers of race, nationality and religion and touches the human heart. It was very informative to me also to learn the history of Vietnam after the Americans left from the Vietnamese point of view.

Kim Phuc is an inspiration for us all. Reading her story can only make us more human and better at being a human. I don't see how anyone could not be touched by this story.

Everyone should read Denise. She is interested in humanity love and forgiveness. Plus she's witty, funny, honest, intelligent and unpredictable. And she writes one hell of a story.

This one just like her first book touches your heart.

What I like about her is that she doesn't preach. I learned a lot about history and myself by reading this.

thank you Denise
