My Freedom Trip: A Child's Escape from North Korea by Frances and Ginger Park
After the Korean War, a child is sent to South Korea by her mother who hopes to provide her a better life than in the North. The story tells of leaving her mother and home to go on a frightening journey with a gentle guide, who leads her through woods and mountains and across a river to safety. International Reading Association Award, inspired by the Parks' mother's stories.
