Listeners will be shattered by this short gut punch of an audiobook, narrated with tender precision by Greta Jung. The story centers on an unnamed Korean girl who lives in a society that places no value on girls. She sincerely believes that her family's survival is entirely dependent on her only brother, and when disaster strikes, she is determined to protect him at any cost. Jung's deliberate tone, warming as the girl's personality unfolds, perfectly matches Lee's spare prose and heightens the sense of isolation that sets the girl apart. Jung highlights the girl's generous sweetness, made all the more poignant because of the impossible hardships that lie ahead. Listeners will mourn for this bright and giving girl who deserves to be treasured, not forgotten. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
