Publisher's Summary

Teeda Butt Mam was 15 years old when the Khmer Rouge entered Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, in 1975, forcing Teeda and her family to join 3,000,000 other people fleeing the city. In minutes, their safe and well-ordered lives were destroyed. Teeda’s story tells of her extraordinary odyssey out of Cambodia to a strange new land.

Required reading

This story was one I was exposed to in college, and to this day, I think that every student and every voter should read it at least once. Its dignity and moral and economic lessons cannot be valued too highly.
