Book Review: In the Shadow of the Sun

In the Shadow of the Sun by Anne Sibley O’Brien  

jacket

 What a timely story with all that is going on in North Korea.  This fast paced book gives a good inside peek at how North Koreans today are

living under the world’s most repressive regime.  Mia, her brother Simon and their father, an aide worker, are on a five day tour of North Korea.  Then their father is arrested for spying and Mia accidentally comes across photographs of North Korean slave-labor camps.  Mia and her brother realize that the only way to save their father is to get the pictures out of the country.  Now she and her brother must escape on foot through the forests of North Korea and into China before they are caught with the pictures.  An unforgettable story of courage, survival, and love for family.

Find this in our Juvenile Fiction collection under the call number J O’BRIEN.
