Fans of New York Times Bestseller Lauren Tarshis's I Survived Series have an exciting new book to look forward to. From multi-award-winning Ellie Crowe and bestselling children's author Scott Peters comes a gripping story about one refugee's escape from the oppression of North Korea. 14-year-old Dae has been taught that his country's fearless leaders are like gods. Yet the painfully skinny boy can't help wondering if something's off, because all his family has to eat is watery porridge made from grass. At school, Dae and his friends are so hungry that it's hard to play 'Bash the American' in the schoolyard. In class, the boys and girls bow before the leaders' giant portraits, their clothes flapping around their bony limbs. Dae begins to question why their rulers look so well fed. When Dae's beloved parents fall into trouble, the young teen must fend for himself. Dae begins to dream of rebellion--of fleeing across the forbidden border into China to look for work. For how else can he help free his family? But can the starving boy survive the deadly crossing? It would take all of his remaining strength to succeed. Still, Dae becomes certain of one thing . . . He must escape! Young readers will be transported by this new series about smart kids who have what it takes to survive.… (més)

This is a very interesting book, but I am unsure of the audience. While this is a very relevant and current topic, both the North Korean situation and refugees as a global crisis currently, the writing can come off as talking down to the reader. While I think this short book belongs on the shelves of every public school’s library, I wished it would have been written for adult as well. Give it a read and form your own opinion about the audience - no matter what it is worth it. ( )

This is an excellent book. It follows a 14 year old through his attempt at surviving on a ruthless winter after his parents disappear. We follow him through hunger, fear, shame, cold, but also hope and bravery as he tries to reach the border of Mongolia to gain asylum and freedom.
Its short chapters make the book an excellent option for 5th-6th graders who will absolutely love this story. ( )

This is an excellent introductory book for middle school students to understand what life is like for a 14 year old boy who does what he must to survive. From reading adult books about life in North Korea, this plot rings very plausible and is revealed in an unthreatening manner about the brutal realities of life there. With short chapters which foreshadow his journey, this would work well as an in class read. I received a copy for review through LibraryThings Early Reviewers program. ( )
