Given To Me For An Honest Review She Is Mine: A War Orphan's Incredible Journey of Survival by Stephanie Fast isn't a must read it's a HAVE to read. This book will gra b you, have you one the edge of your seat and have your turn page after page, after page and turning more pages. You won't stop until  the end. It is about a young Korean girl who falls in love with an American soldier. He returns to America and she is left pregnant. She  has her baby and her family are in shock because the baby is "tougee" - biracial. No one wants anything to do with the child. When the child is four her mother is forced to take her and leave her somewhere, the family no longer wants to have her with them or want to  continue to take care of her. So her mother takes her to the train station and abandons her there. Yoon Myoung leaves the station and decides to look for her mother. She travels for several years looking. She suffers horribly. People were very cruel to her. She is  "tougee". Will Yoon Myoung find her mother? Will she ever be able to live a better life? Will she know love and trust? The end is very  surprising. I loved this book. I gave this book 5 stars but it deserves many, many more. This is one book that would be perfect for your  bookshelf and I highly recommend it to everyone. I look forward to more from Stephanie Fast.
