Laura P. said:
This book is a riveting account of a child’s horrific experiences during the reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia in the mid to late 70s. All the more disturbing to find out this is basically a true story with the author just filling in gaps in Arn Chorn’s memory that make it fictional. Arn is an incredible person who is still suffering from his experiences but helping others as he helps himself. This is definitely a cross-over YA book that will appeal to adults and may be too intense for sensitive teens. Follow it up by viewing the film The Flute Player and see Arn and others from the story as he travels to Cambodia for one of his projects: reviving traditional music. Available for streaming on Netflix.
