Sungju Lee, Susan Elizabeth McClelland
Every Falling Star, the first book to portray contemporary North Korea to a young audience, is the intense memoir of a North Korean boy named Sungju who was forced at age twelve to live on the streets and fend for himself. To survive, Sungju creates a gang and lives by thieving, fighting, begging, and stealing rides on cargo trains. This riveting memoir allows young readers to learn about other cultures where freedoms they take for granted do not exist.
