Brother's Keeper

by Julie Lee

Julie Lee’s “Brother’s Keeper” is a harrowing, heartbreaking tale of hope, love, and survival against insurmountable odds. The author transports the readers to the Korean War in 1950 — also known as the “Forgotten War” — where millions of people lost their lives trying to flee to South Korea. Twelve-year-old Sora and her family plan to escape and walk hundreds of miles to the South Korean city of Busan from their tiny mountain village, but an incendiary bombing changes everything. Sora and her little brother Young will have to get to Busan on their own. Can a twelve-year-old girl and her eight-year-old brother survive three hundred miles of warzone in winter?
