Publisher's Summary

Get out! Run! We must leave this place! They are going to destroy this whole place! Go, children, run first! Go now!

These were the final shouts nine-year-old Kim Phuc heard before her world dissolved into flames - before napalm bombs fell from the sky, burning away her clothing and searing deep into her skin. It's a moment forever captured, an iconic image that has come to define the horror and violence of the Vietnam War. Kim was left for dead in a morgue; no one expected her to survive the attack. Napalm meant fire, and fire meant death.

Against all odds, Kim lived - but her journey toward healing was only beginning. When the napalm bombs dropped, everything Kim knew and relied on exploded along with them: her home, her country's freedom, her childhood innocence and happiness. The coming years would be marked by excruciating treatments for her burns and unrelenting physical pain throughout her body, which were constant reminders of that terrible day. Kim survived the pain of her body ablaze, but how could she possibly survive the pain of her devastated soul?

Fire Road is the true story of how she found the answer in a God who suffered himself; a Savior who truly understood and cared about the depths of her pain.

What an emotional, terrifying, & wondrous journey!

Fire Road
The Napalm Girl's Journey Through the Horrors of War to Faith, Forgiveness, and Peace
By: Kim Phuc Phan Thi, Ashley Wiersma
Narrated by: Emily Woo Zeller
This was an amazing story of an amazing person. This tells of her life before the bombs, lying in the morgue while alive for three days, her time after while trying to heal, the painful treatments, her personal mental torment, the life in her country making her act as a mouth piece against the Americans when it wasn't the American bombs, trying to find love with scars, finding a new religion and being thrown out by her family, and escaping to Canada. All was so detailed that you felt like you were there. Very tense and exciting. Emotional and dramatic. The narration was perfect! Couldn't be a better narrator than this performer for this book! She was spot on! She really carried the emotions, the pain, loss, and excitement well. The book does have quite a bit of religion in it about half way through but this is important for her story.

A life unexplained without God's power

Few books give more than a few thought provoking ideas and repeatable antidotes. This whole book is rich and alive as you listen to how a life can be lived triumphantly under God's power. Frances Chan said "I don't want my life to be explainable without the Holy Spirit". Here truly is a life that isn't.
