Description

Koreans Sun-hee and her brother Tae-yul must study Japanese language and culture in school. The symbols of their beloved Korea-like its flag and the rose of Sharon tree-can never be displayed or mentioned in public. When the Emperor of Japan decrees that all Koreans must take Japanese names, Sun-hee and Tae-yul become Keoko and Nobuo. But as World War II explodes all around them, Sun-hee and Tae-yul wage their own war to stay true to their family, their country, and themselves.

Professional reviews

"Park, who won the 2002 Newbery Medal for her previous book, THE SINGLE SHARD, is back with a fascinating look at Korea under Japanese occupation at the outbreak of WWII. Brother and sister Sun-hee and Tal-yule are forced to learn Japanese and give up all things Korean, including their names, Keoko and Nobuo. This story casts light on an era and place little known by young people in America today and, like all good history, lends an understanding of current events. Despite the help that everyone must give to the war preparations, not everyone is willing to defend Japan. Keoko and her brother take their own risks in their efforts to resist. This is a powerful and riveting tale, marred only by a narration that seems at times flat and without emotion. It is, however, delivered with beautiful clarity and crisp pronunciation of foreign terms. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
