(From the publisher):
Fleeing their war-torn Cambodian village in early 1980, twelve-year-old Dara and her family establish a makeshift home at a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodian border. Then shelling and fighting, inescapable even there, separate Dara from her family, and she must overcome her fear and lack of confidence to find them again.
