I am reviewing a copy of Too Young To Escape through Pajama Press and Netgalley:
After the Vietnam War ends Van wakes up one morning to find that her Mother, her sisters Loan and LAN and her brother Tuan have left. They have escaped the communist regime that has taken over Ho Chi Minh city for the freedom they have found in Canada. Van who was only four was far to young to escape and grandmother is to Old for a journey that is so dangerous.
Once they are settled in North America her parents will eventually sponsor them and Van as well as her Grandmother will be able to fly away to safety. Meanwhile Van is forced to deal with an Aunt and Uncle who let it be known they don’t want her she is forced to work harder than a little girl should simply to satisfy them, even then they are not often satisfied.
I give Too Young to Escape five our of five stars!
