This book takes me back to my childhood and to my old school and to Washington,D.C. and riding the bus before Metro bus and pulling the chord because you wanted to stop the bus. I have mostly good memories of attending Linton Hall in the 1960's, but the take away is that we learned to work together, to excel, to persevere. To survive. I remember Mrs. Kim, and how wonderful she was, and what a great tribute to your mom, Augustus. I knew Joseph and although the nun got it wrong, I didn't join the naval academy, I did serve in the United States Air Force for a time, and later enjoyed a very successful corporate career and a very happy life.

The first half of this book describes the author's travel from Korea to the U.S. around the time of his tenth birthday, and the vast differences between his native country, Tokyo (where he has a layover) and the U.S. The second half, of special interest to Linton Hall Military School alumni, describes his first experiences at an all-boys military boarding school run by Benedictine nuns (quite an unusual combination!) and the culture shock he experiences with different rules, lack of privacy, harsh discipline, food that even Americans considered bland, and he even more so, being used to spicy Korean food. The second part of the book was of special interest to me, as I was there at the time, and he is describing conditions there exactly as I remember them. (I write a blog about Linton Hall Military School.) This book is available both in print and in the nook format.
