Reading Journal Entry: Lucky Child, by Loung Ung

Disclaimer: I work with Loung on speaking engagements.

In Loung's first memoir, First They Killer My Father, she told the story of her survival of the war in Cambodia, and how she lost half of her family. In this second work she tells the story of the second half of her life, after she emigrates to America with her older brother, interlacing chapters about life recovering in Vermont with stories written from the viewpoint of her older sister, Chou, who was left behind in Cambodia.

She does a surprisingly believable job with her sister's voice.
