I loved the book!

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-02-10) Excellent Permalink

This book is an eye opener on how much you really have, like your family.  You can lose them in less than a minute.  In this book it also shows how much work you have to do as a slave working in the rice fields from dawn til dusk with little food.  I loved the book.
