Every Falling Star: The True Story of How I Survived and Escaped North Korea

by Sungju Lee and Susan Elizabeth McClelland
£7.99   paperback  Abrams (2016)

Every Falling Star: The True Story of How I Survived and Escaped North Korea by Sungju Lee and Susan Elizabeth McClelland Every Falling Star, the first book to portray contemporary North Korea to a young audience, is the intense memoir of a North Korean boy named Sungju who is forced at age twelve to live on the streets and fend for himself.
 
To survive, Sungju creates a gang and lives by thieving, fighting, begging, and stealing rides on cargo trains. Sungju richly re-creates his scabrous story, depicting what it was like for a boy alone to create a new family with his gang, his “brothers”; to be hungry and to fear arrest, imprisonment, and even execution.
 
This riveting memoir allows young readers to learn about other cultures where freedoms they take for granted do not exist.
