By Alice Greenway
The story of two sisters whose father is sent to photograph the war in Vietnam, so they live with their mother in Hong Kong, a relatively safe place. But then things get hotter in Hong Kong, and the girls get in trouble until the inevitable tragic end.
I found the book very slow at first. It was difficult for me to get into it. And then, all of a sudden, something really horrible happens. It really seemed like it was very sudden, even though I'm sure there were hints all along, it was just too boring for me to notice them. After that the book stopped being boring, but it was still somewhat annoying. I don't know exactly why. Maybe because it was overly dramatic. [168 pp.]
